Host a concert, organize a bake sale, or celebrate your birthday and help secure a future for India’s artistic heritage.

The Leela Foundation aims to establish the first self-standing endowment for Indian classical dance and music. Our goal is to raise $2 million to provide direct support to established and emerging artists and fuel innovation and excellence in the field. The Foundation’s Community Campaign galvanizes students, audience members, and art lovers of all ages and backgrounds in a collective effort to raise $250,000 towards our larger goal. You can host a fundraising party, organize a lemonade stand, or ask friends to celebrate your birthday with a donation – the possibilities are endless. Join our community of campaigners by hosting your very own fundraiser today.
