Give: Support the heART of our Community

Thanks to your generosity, over 22 local arts organizations, artists and school children received nearly $40,000 in grants from MCA in 2019. With your help, they were able to learn, create and explore the arts. On their behalf, thank you.

Today, we embark on our Year-End Campaign: Give. Support the heART of our community. Our goal is to provide more grant funding by raising $50,000 by December 31, 2019. It is a lofty goal and we can’t do it without your help. 

MCA has a goal of growing our endowment from $1 million to $5 million so that we may increase the amount of our yearly grants. The needs are great. For example, in 2019 our local arts organizations requested grants dollars totaling $65,000. However, due to the current amount of our endowment, we were only able to give out $25,000, fulfilling a mere 38% of the amounts requested from our qualified grant recipients. Would you be willing to make a special year-end contribution of $100, $500, or $1000 to grow our ability to give to the arts?

With your support, we can impact our community in a lasting way.

Thank you.
