Interlochen Center for the Arts Broadens Campaign Goals

Interlochen Center for the Arts has announced that the next phase of its CREATE AMAZING comprehensive fundraising campaign will focus on the People and Programs that make the nearly 90-year old institution a world-renowned destination for arts and arts education.

“The Board of Trustees has voted to increase the fundraising goal for our comprehensive fundraising campaign to $125 million, with a greater emphasis on securing support for the people and programs that make Interlochen such an extraordinary institution,” says Interlochen Center for the Arts President Trey Devey. “I am excited to have the opportunity to support our excellent faculty, enhance our artistic and educational programs and increase financial aid for our students.”

Since 2012, the generosity of supporters, including alumni, parents, and friends, has helped Interlochen raise $110 million as part of CREATE AMAZING: The Campaign for Interlochen—$10 million over the $100 million goal announced in July 2016. To this point, the focus of the Campaign has been on completing the revitalization of Interlochen’s campus, most notably by raising funds for a new, $24 million music building that is now under construction. While planned expansions and improvements to the Center’s historic dance facilities are still in the works, the Campaign will continue its successful momentum into 2018 by focusing on raising funds for the People and Programs that make Interlochen both a cultural and educational arts destination.
