MCA Alumni Association Giving

The MCA Alumni Association is committed to helping MCA students in multiple ways through mentoring, networking, internships, and scholarships.

As the college comes to a close in 2020, MCA will be “teaching-out” its remaining students. Sixty-percent of MCA students are deemed low-income, and approximately twenty-four percent are the first in their families to attend a post-secondary institution. Scholarships provide life-altering and life-long benefits to students who otherwise may not have the financial means to continue in their education. Every gift makes an impact and is an investment in an MCA student.

Here are two ways you can easily give back:

MCA Alumni Association Scholarship Fund
Donors may make gifts to MCA’s Alumni Association Scholarship Fund in any amount to support the award of merit and need-based scholarships to students. These scholarships are critical to the vast majority of students’ ability to attend MCA. If you wish to make a contribution to the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, please select the “Alumni Association Scholarship Fund” box on the giving form.

Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund provides limited emergency financial support to currently enrolled students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship. Decisions regarding disbursement of funds are made on a case-by-case basis. Awards are not considered loans and do not require repayment. If you wish to make a contribution to the Student Emergency Fund, please select the “Student Emergency Fund” box on the giving form.

These final MCA students are our greatest asset, our legacy. Your gift to the Alumni Scholarship Program will empower students to invent the future.

Please consider supporting MCA students through the gift of scholarship. You may contribute to this scholarship fund online below, or by clicking here. Or you may mail a check to Memphis College of Art. Please ask your employer about matching your gift.

Gifts sent by check should be made payable to “Memphis College of Art” and sent to: MCA Advancement Department, 1930 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN 38104. Please designate on your check that this gift is for the “Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.”
