Fundraising Campaign

MMAC is actively seeking donations in these major areas:

Youth: While we have had a strong Arts After School program, funded by grants for a number of years, it has only been at the Elementary School. Many students have expressed their disappointment that this doesn’t continue when they move to the Middle/High School. We initiated a weekly Youth Art Club for Middle/High School youth at the MMAC Center and have recently established a Youth Art Club extension program within the Mountainair Middle/High School. MMAC would like to increase this program and funding is needed for teachers and supplies. Additionally, with limited donor support for the day-school residency that has been ongoing with the National Dance Institute of Santa Fe, more funding is required to fully cover their costs and to bring more musical and theatrical performance experiences to the young people of Mountainair.

MMAC Center: The art center, which houses workshops, classes, studio space and performances for the community, costs about $6,000 a year to operate. Rental fees cover part of this cost. Any improvements to the building (which a 100-year old Historical building regularly needs!) or certain programs (like the Mosaic Project which is ongoing and has beautified Mountainair’s downtown district, attracting cultural tourism) require additional funding. We are currently developing the back garden area as a place for performances, weddings and parties, and while some funding has been found with grants, more is needed from the community.
