Moving Forward Campaign

The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) announces the opportunity for you to elevate the creative academic achievements and well-being of students at IAIA, by helping to build a new Performing Arts and Fitness Center on campus. This $9.5 million new center will provide professionally equipped rehearsal and performance spaces and a full gymnasium and cardio room.

Your Support Makes The Difference

IAIA has already secured $7.5 million from individuals, foundations, the State of New Mexico, and various Federal sources. We now seek to raise the remaining $2 million from private sources.

Put Your Name on Campus

With a gift of $750 or more, you can have an engraved message on the granite pavers in the outdoor entry.

Other recognition opportunities are available for gifts of $7,500 or more. Naming opportunities are available to as a way to honor a donor, a business, a business associate, a loved one, or to have your family’s name as part of IAIA’s history-and future. For gifts of $750-$5,000, payments can be made over two years and for donations of $7,500 or more, they can be fulfilled in three years.

Every gift—from donors such as you—will make a difference in the lives of IAIA students, their families, and their communities. The Office of Institutional Advancement is pleased to work with you to personalize your gift to this very important “Moving Forward” campaign.

With your support, IAIA can build an extraordinary Performing Arts and Fitness Building for students, the community—and for the future.
