Friends of the BCPA is a non-profit organization, EIN #: 46-3670083.

At Friends of the BCPA, we are committed to the development of arts in the Bloomington-Normal area. We support the BCPA in any way we can, including finding sources of funding to further the mission. Our current focus is the renovation of the Bloomington Creativity Center.

We all know the how important art is in shaping our culture and community. From driving local tourism to helping children spark their creativity and imagination, art promotes true prosperity. We believe that this is essential to having a strong and cohesive community. Through Friends of the BCPA, we are helping to build a better future for our children and for our community.
