Support the Navaratri Festival
This year we ask you to consider a donation to honor the legacy of this longstanding tradition and to ensure that the Navaratri Festival continues for future generations. The India Arts Foundation (IAF), founded by Madhu Reddy and other artists, has been a long-standing supporter of the Navaratri Festival as well as other arts initiatives in Connecticut. IAF’s mission is to nurture, promote, and celebrate the vibrant traditions of India in America, by supporting and bringing the work of teachers, students, and practitioners, scholars, and arts organizations to wider audiences.

This year, we are asking the community to make a donation to Wesleyan University in support of the festival. IAF will generously match community donations up to $50,000 total. All donations are tax deductible and will support the festival to ensure its continuation. Donors are invited to a post-show reception in World Music Hall at Wesleyan with Amjad Ali Khan on Sunday, October 13.

If you would like to make a donation, checks should be made out to Wesleyan University, with a note that your gift is to support the Navaratri Festival:
