Additional Opportunities

Generous supporters of IU Auditorium greatly impact every aspect of our season’s performances each year.

To learn more about ways you can personally invest in IU Auditorium, please contact Director of Development, Kevin Gifford at (812) 855-0505 or [email protected].

Performance Enrichment Fund

The Performance Enrichment Fund was established to allow donors of IU Auditorium to directly invest in quality programming, equipment, and resources made available to IU Auditorium and those we serve. In order for IU Auditorium to continually fulfill our mission to create engaging world-class arts and events experiences and the level of artistry our audiences expect, investments must be made to maintain and/or upgrade infrastructure and equipment throughout the facility and maximize our programming offerings each season. 

In our 2020–2021 season, gifts to the Performance Enrichment Fund support artist fees, technology expenses, and operational needs for the dozens of engaging virtual programs being offered to our audiences free of charge. This crucial support temporarily replaces the revenue from ticket sales at live events that we rely on to cover artist fees, technology expenses, and operational needs that make our events possible

If you are interested in investing in IU Auditorium’s Performance Enrichment Fund, please contact IU Auditorium Director of Development, Kevin Gifford at (812) 855-0505 or at [email protected].
