Become a Book Backer

A unique way to help IU Press is by becoming a book backer and underwriting the production of a title.

A book backer, with her or his permission, enjoys the publication recognition of supporting a book by being acknowledged in the front matter and in other appropriate materials and activities. The donor also enjoys the private satisfaction of making an essential contribution to a volume that will endure and add to the sum of human knowledge.

Book backer commitments are usually in the $1,000 range for individuals and in the $5,000 to $10,000 range for companies and families. They are payable in increments determined by the project's schedule and donor preferences, are tax deductible, and held in the IU Press Restricted Fund at the Foundation.
