Your Passion. Our Purpose.

Take your love for the arts, science, teaching, or technology and turn it into a legacy for student success. That is what happens when your passion meets our purpose. The Vincennes University Foundation assists alumni, friends, and partners in discovering their own style of philanthropy and matches it with efforts that support the mission of Vincennes University. Let us bring your passion for helping others to the forefront and be a leader in transformative change.
