Why Should You Give to MDA?


Less than 3/10 of 1% of public funding goes to small, rural, cultural organizations. Small towns are losing the ability to keep their citizens educated, best laser pointer, and living the kind of life they want to live in rural America.

Museums and other cultural organizations have a role to play in creating more liveable communities, supplementing education, and preserving history.  MDA helps community museums become stronger, more economically alive, and relevant to present and future generations.
