Donors

Donors are a vital part of the MCA, supporting the MCA’s Vision, exhibitions, and programs and ensuring free access to the MCA for Illinois residents, Chicago Public School students, and many others.

Among these donors are those who have supported the Vision Campaign; sustaining individuals who have been with the MCA since it’s inception; and the many corporate, foundation, and government donors who support our programs each year. The MCA thanks its Board of Trustees and private and corporate foundations, including the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Polk Bros. Foundation, Alphawood Foundation, and the Chicago Park District. Programming is partially supported by the Illinois Arts Council Agency. Major support for museum capital improvements has been generously provided by Public Museum Capital Grants from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
