Gifts totaling $2 million from Indiana University alumni Jeff and Marcia Fettig and the Whirlpool Foundation will support IU Kelley School of Business efforts to attract and retain top faculty, provide scholarships to students, and strengthen its initiatives in digital intelligence and social entrepreneurship.
Fettig joined Whirlpool 37 years ago and stepped down as CEO last year after 13 years leading the company; he remains chairman of the board. In recognition of his service, the company’s foundation donated $1 million to the Kelley School, and the Fettigs are matching this gift.
“Jeff and Marcia’s personal and professional relationships with the Kelley School have had a tremendous impact that continues to create momentum for students and faculty,” said Idalene “Idie” Kesner, dean of the Kelley School and the Frank P. Popoff Chair in Strategic Management. “They truly exemplify what it means to be one of our graduates: to work hard, put their heart and soul into everything they do and to use their talent to help others.”
