About Us

For 25 years, the Indianapolis performing arts community has come together for Spotlight, a night of song, dance, drama and theater to raise money for The Indiana AIDS Fund, a fundraising program of The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis. The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis is the largest private funder of HIV/AIDS programs in Indiana, and Spotlight is the largest fundraiser of its kind for HIV/AIDS in the Midwest.

To date, the Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis  has provided $21.5 million to more than 75 partner organizations throughout Indiana through the Indiana AIDS Fund.  The Fund has been recognized for funding cutting-edge treatment as prevention and testing programs that otherwise would not have received support from other sources.
