For more than 130 years, MCAD has been a creative pillar in the community. Because of the generosity of past Auction attendees, 331 students have received scholarships, ensuring that the creative changemakers of tomorrow have access to a world-class education. 

This year, in response to the killing of George Floyd, MCAD Auction Online will support two additional fundraising opportunities: The Black Leadership Award, a newly endowed scholarship for Black students, and The Whittier Alliance, a nonprofit organization that supports MCAD’s neighborhood which was dramatically impacted by the recent protests.

Though we cannot gather in-person this year, it is more important than ever to recognize the importance of art and creative thinking and invest in student scholarships.
