MIAD to match $10,000 in donations to fight racial injustice
MIAD will commit $10,000 to match dollar for dollar donations by students, faculty, staff and alumni to selected nonprofit organizations in the City of Milwaukee fighting racial injustice.
Participants should make their donations directly to any of the organizations below, and then submit a gift receipt from the organization(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The college will honor donations to these organizations made from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 until the $10,000 total is reached.
MIAD will continue to match a total of $10,000 of donations annually. Director of Inclusivity Richard Anderson-Martinez will seek input from students, faculty and staff each fall to select organizations to receive matching donations from MIAD for the following calendar year.
We will keep you apprised of progress toward this calendar year’s $10,000 match.
