Annual Giving

Undesignated Gifts

Undesignated gifts allow MECA to put your gift where it is needed most. They are part of the nearly $6 million in financial aid to students in all our programs, help our faculty stay current and artistically fresh, and help us maintain and upgrade studio and classroom necessities. Each gift makes difference in the quality of services MECA is able to provide to students in all programs: the BFA, MFA, MAT, Pre College and Continuing Studies.

Annual Giving runs in conjunction with MECA’s fiscal year, beginning on July 1st and ending on June 30th annually. Please visit this page to make your gift now.

Designated Gifts

You may also designate your gift to an area of special interest or you may make a gift “In Honor of” or “In Memory of” a specific person by filling out the appropriate fields on our online form. We will notify the recipient or their family of your gift. A designated gift for a specific college department or program helps MECA accelerate opportunities for students by providing resources not annually budgeted from operating funds.

The Porteous Society


MECA’s Porteous Society recognizes supporters who make gifts of $2,000 or more each year to any purpose at the college. Gifts at this level demonstrate that donors share MECA’s commitment to providing students with the tools they need to take risks, think critically and work creatively to become the next generation of artists and thinkers. Members of the Porteous Society receive periodic newsletters from the President and are invited to special MECA events.
