The Indiana State Fair Commission established the Indiana State Fair Foundation in 2011 as a 501(c)(3) entity to support the activities of Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center and the annual Indiana State Fair.
The Foundation was initially tasked with supporting the renovation of the Indiana Farmers Coliseum and construction of the Pop Weaver Youth Pavilion through an ambitious $10 million capital campaign. Thanks to generous support of hundreds of donors, the Coliseum Capital Campaign was successfully completed in 2016.
Since that time, the Foundation has focused it fundraising efforts in three key areas: Agriculture Education, Youth Development and Campus Stewardship & Preservation. More specifically, the Indiana State Fair Foundation supports the preservation and enhancement of the facilities and infrastructure on the Fairgrounds, youth education through on-site and virtual school fieldtrip programs and recognition of 4-H youth participating at the Indiana State Fair.
With your support, the Indiana State Fair Foundation can continue to support the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center as it operates a world-class event facility, promotes and educates youth and adults about agriculture, and produces the best state fair in the country, the Great Indiana State Fair.
The Indiana State Fair Foundation raises funds to philanthropically support the year-round agriculture education, youth development, and campus stewardship of the Indiana State Fairgrounds for the benefit of all citizens of Indiana.
