Friends of Lotus

Every gift counts!  When you make a donation as a Friend of Lotus, you bring the world to our community and make a difference for thousands of people — of all ages and backgrounds — who experience Lotus programs each year.

Friends of Lotus gifts support the annual operating budget that makes all Lotus initiatives possible, including Lotus Blossoms K-12 Educational Outreach, summer Visual Arts Outreach, and the Lotus World Music & Arts Festival.  Friends of Lotus may also direct gifts to the Lotus-Fitzgerald Endowment.

Want to make big impact that works for your budget and schedule? Please consider joining our Encore Circle of sustaining monthly donors and help ensure consistent support for Lotus programs.

Rather mail in a gift?  Our mailing address is PO Box 1667, Bloomington, IN 47402.  Checks should be made out to “Lotus Education & Arts Foundation”.

Friends of Lotus gifts come from individuals or households; if you are interested in sponsoring Lotus through your business, please click here.
