Our annual giving program provides critical unrestricted support for the basic operation of MKA – funds that are used immediately during the school year and directly support our students and faculty. 

Tuition does not cover the full cost of an MKA education. Philanthropic support of MKA makes up 4% of our annual budget. Your support of the MKA Fund provides critical resources to bolster financial aid, faculty development, academic programs, student activities, the arts, and athletics, allowing MKA to make choices not compromises.
