The MCA is grateful to its large community of supporters for helping the museum present the best in contemporary culture. Generous donations from individual members, donors, and the museum’s network of corporate, foundation, and government partners help meet fundamental needs, from staff salaries to building maintenance and keeping the lights on at the MCA.
A simple philanthropic donation to the MCA Chicago directly supports new artists, new exhibitions and a fresh season of new surprises every year. Your contribution is fully tax-deductible, which means each dollar goes directly to support the programs you care about.
MCA Members, Circle Donors, and Director’s Vision Council members enjoy a number of benefits including free admission to the MCA and reciprocal privileges at museums around the country; discounts on classes, lectures, and performances as well as at Puck’s and the MCA store; invitations to the museum’s exclusive events and important celebrations; opportunities to interact with cutting-edge artists and curators; and more, based on the level of support.
The MCA’s affiliate and auxiliary groups provide opportunities for members and donors to learn more about contemporary art in Chicago and become more involved with the museum. These groups connect the MCA community through special events and other unique opportunities.
Corporate Partners and Sponsors
The MCA engages Chicago’s corporate community through corporate memberships and sponsorship of the museum’s exhibitions and programs. Membership in the MCA’s Corporate Partners Program offers Chicago companies opportunities to entertain clients, inspire employees, and make connections with our savvy patrons.
