Support Our Youth & Circle City Classic 2014




Circle City Classic® is a scholarship fundraiser for Indiana students that aims to support educational achievement and promote cultural excellence, while showcasing the spirit, energy and tradition of America’s historically black colleges and universities.  Last year, IBE provided more than $200,000 in scholarships for Indiana students.


This year marks the 31st Anniversary of the Circle City Classic® game, with SIAC rivals Kentucky State University and Central State University going head to head at Lucas Oil Stadium. We are asking that you consider partnering with us to help our youth, particularly those who are underserved and at risk, get inspired academically. Attendance at the Circle City Classic® has proven to inspire thousands of youth to pursue a college education when they are made aware of the many scholarship, tutoring and mentoring opportunities we provide directly and through our partners. 


We seek your support for the purchase of a block of $10 or $20 tickets beginning in price from $250 up to $5,000. This purchase will enable youth represented by many different organizations and agencies to attend the game. Some organizations that have benefited in the past include, but are not limited to:
