Michael MaurerIndianapolis businessman Michael “Mickey” Maurer has made a $35 million donation to the Indiana University, whose Bloomington law school will be renamed the Michael Maurer School of Law.

Maurer, 65, earned an IU law degree in 1967 and had a 20-year career as a practicing attorney. He is publisher of the Indianapolis Business Journal and chairman of the National Bank of Indianapolis. He served as Governor Mitch Daniels’ first secretary of commerce.

The gift, the largest in the law school’s history to come from a single donor, will fund an undetermined number of scholarships.


Maurer’s gift brings the law school’s fund-raising during the capital campaign to $83 million. Last December, the Lilly Endowment donated $25 million for faculty recruitment.

Because both donations come during IU’s $1 billion Matching the Promise fund-raising campaign, the university will match investment income from both gifts in perpetuity.
