Thank you for your interest in the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Giving to the Jacobs School of Music-and specifying how you want your gift to be used-can be done in a number of ways, such as:

Endowed Gifts

An endowment provides for the continuing support of the IU Jacobs School of Music through scholarships, fellowships, professorships, and chairs.

Operation Support

The opportunity exists for the support of particular productions of the IU Opera Theater, the IU Ballet Theater, a chamber music series or another individual performance.  Please call the Development Office at 812-855-4737for more information

Gifts to the Operation of the Jacobs School of Music

The Jacobs School of Music, like conservatories across the United States, faces significant economic challenges in maintaining the quality of its operation. While costs continue to rise, we do not expect significant increases in either appropriations from the state, or from tuition revenue in the foreseeable future.

To complement support from the state, we are turning to the private sector. The bulk of our endowment is directed toward scholarships, although a number of chairs have recently been pledged. The school, therefore, runs an annual campaign to seek gifts that are not restricted for specific purposes, but are designated to be used at the discretion of the dean in the best interests of the school. Such monies can take a variety of forms-from annual gifts to endowed unrestricted funds. With imagination, and the support of our friends, the possibilities are limitless.
