Your gift matters. One hundred percent of our annual budget is supported through community contributions

Why give? Because Spirit & Place breaks down silos, challenges “either/or” and “us/them” mindsets, disrupts inequity, and helps us wrestle with complexity in a rapidly changing world. Working in partnership with hundreds of community partners, we present year-round events and conversations, a one-of-a-kind festival, and skill-building opportunities that: 

Build community bonds and connections
Advance community-centric collaborations 
Promote adventurous civility
Amplify and center unheard voices
Strengthen civic capacity, and
Spark community transformation

Make your donation online today or send your gift by mail; make your check payable to IU Foundation, write “Spirit & Place Fund” in the memo, and send IU Foundation, P.O. Box 6460, Indianapolis, IN 46206-6460.  





         Since 1996, the festival has
        reached over 250,000 people.
