Individual Benefits

Gifts to the Celebrating Arts and Ideas series help us offer an engaging array of speakers, musicians and artists to community members of the Fox River Valley. Our ability to continue this enriching series is dependent, in great part, on the support of our community members. While other organizations are charging hefty admission fees or scaling back their offerings, Aurora University is committed to being the community’s university and to keeping our events open to the public at no charge.
