Support IU Auditorium

IU Auditorium is so much more than just a place to see the biggest names in entertainment, Broadway performances, and more. IU Auditorium is a community gathering place, an educational resource, an advocate for the arts, and most of all, a place where you can feel proud to introduce your children, grandchildren, family, and friends to the breathtaking and invaluable world of the performing arts.

Contributions from our Circle of Friends members, sponsor businesses, and other local organizations help ensure that IU Auditorium is a pillar of the performing arts in our community. These generous donations represent IU Auditorium’s single largest and most important source of income—accounting for nearly half of the annual operating budget—and without them, our organization could not provide the access to world-class artists, entertainers, world leaders, educational programming, and other incredible opportunities that make IU Auditorium such a unique and valuable part of the South-Central Indiana arts landscape.

This year, in addition to our traditional annual endeavors, IU Auditorium is partnering with local non-profit organizations for our “Give the Magic” campaign, which will provide tickets and educational outreach opportunities to under-served children throughout our community. Funds raised by our Circle of Friends memberships and corporate sponsorships make this new partnership possible! Visit to learn more.

Be a part of giving the gift of the performing arts—for this generation and those to come! Please donate today.

“Over the years, my husband and I have contributed to IU—mostly to athletics. But once we moved to Bloomington, we saw a much greater need: the IU Auditorium. Discovering the Auditorium gave me new passion. Where else on a campus in the Midwest could you ever find such a gem?” —Natasha (Tosh) Swingley
