Gifts to the BU Arts Initiative support a variety of our programming for students.

Your donation of $50 will cover the costs of craft/art materials for 5 students for our First Friday or Third Thursday programs – our casual craft and snack events in partnership with Student Wellbeing that regularly draw 40 to 60 students at each event.

Your donation of $400 will provide an Arts Insider event for up to 20 students. Arts Insiders will attend a unique event or hands-on activity like a glass-blowing demonstration in the greater Boston area. Hosted by our Student Advisory Council.

Your donation of $750 can provide 50 student tickets for Art for 5 events in the Boston area. Unique events like the Immersive Imagine Van Gogh for which we resell tickets to students for $5 so that more students can experience world-class art at an affordable cost to them!

A gift of $1,000 can cover the cost of paint and supplies for a student public art mural.

A $2,000 leadership-level donation can cover a day or more of an artist in residence in partnership with an academic department.

 Your support at the $5,000 leadership level will help us bring one international artist to campus for our Annual BU Global Music Festival.
