Friends of Lotus

Friends of Lotus help underwrite everything: from Lotus Blossoms and summer arts outreach, to the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival and the Lotus-Fitzgerald Endowment.

Every gift counts; every gift makes a difference to thousands of people — of all ages — who experience Lotus programs each year.


Use the “Donate” button on this page to make an on-line donation now or to set up a monthly sustaining gift.  Friends of Lotus gifts are tax-deductible; for more information, call 812-336-6599.

To support Lotus by sponsoring an event through your business, please visit our Event Sponsorship section for full information.

We update this page once a year, in January; if you have made a donation to Lotus and do not see your name on our list, please contact Development Director Kristin Varella (812-336-6599 or kristin {at} lotusfest {dot} org).



Thank you to our 2014 Friends of Lotus!
