Friends of Beckman Auditorium

We invite you to join The Friends of Beckman Auditorium, who have been supporting the performing arts at Caltech for more than 40 years.

Your tax-deductible membership in The Friends will help provide funding for artists' fees, as well as community outreach activities such as the Cultural Expedition Program, a collaboration between Caltech and the Pasadena Unified School District that enriches the lives of hundreds of students annually.

To join, please call the Friends Service Desk at (626) 395-6400, or join online by going to the Caltech giving page, clicking on "Special Gifts" and then selecting "Friends of Beckman Auditorium" as the designation.
