Friends of Convocations

Friends of Convocations are a dynamic group of arts supporters whose gifts allow Convocations to keep ticket prices low, to bring educational arts programs for students of all ages, and to allow us to make big projects a reality. Revenue from ticket sales only covers 60% of the true costs of our programs, and we don’t receive state funds, so gifts from generous individuals, corporations, campus partners and foundations help us close that gap.

Corporate Partners

As the largest arts presenter in the area, we can help your company reach an audience of thousands, while providing memorable performing arts experiences for the entire community. Our corporate partners provide approximately $100,000 in support each year to help us pay the expenses related to presenting performances and educational programming. For performances, this means expenses such as artist fees, production expenses, travel, catering, and lodging. For education, this support helps provide ticket and transportation scholarships for young students to attend a performance at Purdue and subsidizes discounted tickets for college students.
