Why support MIAD’s Annual Fund?

Wherever you direct your gift, and whatever amount you generously donate, you help support equity in education and technology so MIAD students become unstoppable creative leaders.

  • 63% of first-year students from Wisconsin are the first in their family to attend college. 
  • 40% of all students are Pell-eligible (of lowest income)
  • In 2019, MIAD was named the #1 art and design college nationwide for helping low-income students attain upper-middle-class jobs (Money Magazine, “Best Colleges for Your Money”).
  • Enrollment has grown 50% in five years, and MIAD has been designated an Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institution.
