IUPUI recently held the 22nd annual IUPUI Spirit of Philanthropy Luncheon and Awards ceremony to honor donors and volunteers who have contributed to excellence in a school or program at IUPUI.

In honoring the donors and volunteers, IUPUI Chancellor Charles R. Bantz said, "Through philanthropy, we link our past and our dreams to create a brighter future."

The guest list included members of the IUPUI administration, deans, directors, faculty, staff and community guests, many of whom have made significant contributions to Indianapolis as well as IUPUI. Governor Daniels was in attendance to support the partnership between the School of Social Work and the Indiana Department of Child Services, which has significantly improved the state’s system for protecting children at risk of abuse and neglect.

Chancellor Bantz hosted the luncheon and ceremony, which took place on April 26, 2011, at the IUPUI Campus Center.  IUPUI, the Indiana University Foundation and The Center on Philanthropy (part of the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI) were event sponsors.
