Endowment Fund

Endowment Fund

The MAC Endowment was established to promote and nurture the arts in Milford and surrounding communities by offering grants and scholarships to local student and adult artists. We are proud to provide encouragement in the areas of Music, Dance, Creative Writing, Visual Arts, and Theater. 

Please consider supporting the endowment with a standard donation, an honorary or memorial gift, or choose to live forever through your charitable legacy, with a bequest to promote education in the arts. Your significant donation will be conservatively invested in the MAC Endowment fund. Only the annual interest is then used to support these projects, ensuring an income stream well into the future.

Your donation will become a gift that keeps on giving! Thank you.
