Ensure a lifetime of world-class theater and film, locally crafted right here in Bloomington, Indiana by supporting and sustaining the Constellation Stage & Screen Endowment Fund.
Your endowment support will introduce Bloomingtonians to the joys of live theater and film for generations to come and will live on in perpetuity, guaranteeing the highest-quality art for everyone, forever.
Why an endowment?
The Constellation Stage & Screen Endowment Fund is an investment in the long term growth and sustainability of our mission. The endowment yields an annual distribution to Constellation (about 4% of the total fund balance), providing a reliable source of annual unrestricted income, alongside other sources such as ticket sales, sponsorships, grants, and donations.
Should I give to the Endowment Fund in lieu of my regular annual contribution?
Please don’t! Annual operating support from our regular donors is essential to Constellation’s success. If you are a current donor to Constellation, we thank you for your support and encourage you to continue contributing at a level that’s comfortable for you. However, we hope you’ll consider a planned gift or additional source of support to help us sustain Constellation’s future.
Where is the endowment held?
The endowment is held in perpetual trust at the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County.
