Indiana State University and the ISU Foundation have agreed to a three-year contract for an athletics sponsorship program. Under the deal, the ISU Foundation will be the point of contact for philanthropic gifts and sponsorship support for the university’s athletic programs.
The contract begins July 1 and the foundation’s development officer, Jeremiah Turner, will lead the program. The university says it is looking to bring a more client service-oriented approach to fundraising and to integrate sponsorships into the Sycamore Athletic Fund.
"We are excited to be selected as the sponsorship program partner for Sycamore Athletics," said Ron Carpenter, president of the ISU Foundation. "This is a prime opportunity to rally support for our teams and help grow the local and regional business investment in our university."
ISU says the contract will further the commitment of the Sycamore Athletic Fund to engage donors and fans of ISU athletics.
