Why should I contribute to MTAC Foundation? I already support the Association with my dues.
The Association and Foundation exist for different purposes. The Association serves its members and forms a professional fellowship. The Foundation raises funds to support MTAC student programs. Member dues cover a portion of what the organization hopes to accomplish.

I’d like to support the Foundation, but I can’t afford it now.
A gift of any amount helps tremendously. Also, there are many creative ways to give without spending any extra money. You can name the Foundation as a beneficiary on your IRA, life insurance, gifts of property, etc. Or you can participate in eScrip or other online programs that allow you to support the organization in your daily activities.


Thank you so much for your support of the VOCE competition. Winning 1st place in the Intermediate Ensemble Category was a major accomplishment and highlight for me and also for our piano quartet. To reach a milestone like this and know that hard work is being recognized is a wonderful gift. Thank you again for your support of young musicians.

I would like to thank you for your generous support toward the VOCE competition. The scholarship money I received was a great help towards funding my musical career and education. I am currently trying to achieve my AA in Music and your generous donation has helped me pay for books and tuition. Thank you very much for this great help and for all your generous support to all young artists.
