DONATION CAMPAIGNS
Buskirk-Chumley Theater Annual Campaign
If you donate today, your contribution will be working to make the Buskirk-Chumley Theater a place where a whole range of dreams come true, unique memories are made, and we all have a chance to feel at home. In addition to welcoming big name stars into our community living room, our donors ensure that our stage and screen belong to everyone. You might perform here. You might help to decide what is shown or performed here. You may just enjoy the show from a comfy seat. This incredible mix of community involvement creates more than entertainment; it creates connection. Won’t you help us to make the BCT a home away from home for even more people in the community?

Donation of $50 or more qualifies you for access to pre-sale tickets for "BCT Presents" shows. The email address you provide upon checkout is the email we will use to send pre-sale information. If you are donating to receive access to a current pre-sale opportunity, please contact the box office at 812-323-3020 to purchase your tickets after this transaction is complete. Your generous contribution will also be recognized in event programs and our annual report unless you indicated you would prefer to remain anonymous.

Lotus Education & Arts Foundation
Make a gift to the Lotus Education & Arts Foundation and become a Friend of Lotus! Friends of Lotus help us bring the world to Bloomington by underwriting inspiring performances, educational outreach, and art-making workshops. Ticket sales only provide about 50% of the budget for producing vibrant programs like the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival, and so we are grateful for donors like you who support our mission: to create opportunities to experience, celebrate, and explore the diversity of the world’s cultures, through music and the arts.
Bloomington Symphony Orchestra
When you make a donation to the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra, you know you're in good company.

Peter Jacobi of the Herald-Times calls the BSO “a gift to the community.” From light-hearted holiday pops shows and children’s concerts to the great masterpieces of orchestral music, our programs educate, enlighten, and entertain audiences of every age and background.

Your generous donation supports both our concerts and educational outreach work, and will be recognized in our programs unless you tell us you wish to remain anonymous.

THANK YOU. We really couldn't do it without you.
