Indiana Daily Student

Support the Indiana Daily Student Legacy Fund

The Indiana Daily Student has shaped and empowered student journalists for more than 150 years. Now more than ever, we need your help.

Like many news organizations, the IDS faces financial shortfalls due to decreasing advertising revenue. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated these issues.

We rely on outside contributions in order to continue serving as a learning lab for student journalists to learn their craft and tell the important stories of the IU and Bloomington communities. Your gift to the Indiana Daily Student Legacy Fund ensures the financial viability of our editorial operations for the IDS and Arbutus yearbook for years to come — from wages for editors and reporters to conference registration fees to other costs associated with the student media experience.
