Bloomington Early Music Festival


Information about giving

The Bloomington Early Music Festival depends on donations from businesses and individuals like you to produce the many different events and programs that it offers. Like many other arts organizations, ticket sales alone do not cover the complete amount of the actual costs of producing the events. Individual and corporate support assists us with more than 60% of our operating needs each year.

BLEMF is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation, which means that your generous contribution can be claimed as a charitable gift on your tax returns.

Major Gifts and Bequests

Please contact us if you are thinking about how you could make a lasting gift to support our in-school educational programs or some aspect of each year's Bloomington Early Festival. We can help by suggesting many different ways to make a major gift or pledge or help you consider putting Early Music Associates, Inc., in your will.


Individual and Corporate Festival Sponsorships and Underwriting

Just about every concert or event that BLEMF produces can be underwritten. This is a classic "win-win" situation — BLEMF gets to produce a wonderful concert and the underwriter not only gets the satisfaction of having helped to create that event, but also the public recognition for such help. The public benefits by having the opportunity to attend a great concert or to learn something new at one of BLEMF's unique educational events.

We have many different events in the works, so just get in touch with us to see what might be right for you personal or company needs.

Festival Underwriter - You will receive full credit for sponsoring this year's festival. A naming opportunity on all literature and publicity, advertising space and editorial mentions in all programs, announcements at events, extensive presence on the Web site, etc. This is a high-visibility promotional opportunity.

Festival Event Sponsorships - A sponsorship opportunity is available for each of the events at the festival. Sponsors are thanked in the program book and Web site, receive verbal thanks before the event, receive reduced advertising in the program book, and a number of tickets to the underwritten event.
