Ventura Music Festival

Become a Founder

Founders Circle members pledge to give $1,000, $2,500 or $5,000 per year for each of three-to-five years. Commitments like these provided the foundation needed to seed and grow the Festival early on and remain essential to our stability and vitality today.

In addition to enabling VMF to pursue excellence in its year-round music programming, Founder support helps to underwrite youth and community initiatives, including Music in the Schools for young children, free public concerts, and discounted or free tickets to Festival events for students.

In appreciation for their leadership gifts, Founders Circle Members enjoy the Festival at the highest level, with benefits and special invitations throughout the year.
