Our Foundation is blessed by its rather simple and informal fundraising program.

We depend purely upon the volition of friends who have proved to very thoughtful and generous and have kept us moving forward these many years. We do not have paid solicitation staff nor do we hold fundraising dinners or raffles or contests. We hold with the format we have and hope that the spirit moves friends to donate to the IAF. We trust that our concerts inspire support, as should the knowledge that we are helping young artists and their chosen art forms stay alive! Enough said, except perhaps, “ thank you,” in advance.

All contributions are tax deductible.

  • Premium access to all IAF events and concerts
