First Bank Richmond celebrated IU Day with a $10,000 matching gift opportunity for alumni and friends of the campus.






IU East Chancellor Kathy Cruz-Uribe, First Bank Richmond President and CEO Garry Kleer, and Rufus announce the IU Day match.



First Bank Richmond matched – up to $500 per donor – up to $10,000 in total giving to the IU East campus Wednesday.

Now in its third year, IU Day is a 24-hour worldwide celebration of Indiana University - a binge-watching, social-sharing, IU-wearing, gift-giving IU extravaganza. First Bank Richmond has the tradition of celebrating IU Day each year with a matching gift.

In November 2017, First Bank Richmond announced a $375,000 gift to IU East that includes the matching gift for IU Day, plus support for the IU East arts program, Red Wolves’ athletics, scholarships, Campus Life programs and the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

This is also Campus Campaign week for the university, the annual fundraising initiative among faculty and staff for important programs and scholarships on the IU East campus.
