Endowment Fund

An endowment gift to MOCAD today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment fund, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Here’s how it works: Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the fund is available each year to address immediate needs at MOCAD. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

MOCAD’s endowment fund is held at the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.
