Reasons to Give

Donations to the Mason Community Arts Academy, which has non-profit status through the George Mason University Foundation, go directly towards helping to fund our community outreach programs, student scholarships, and general operating expenses. Along with grants and corporate donations, private donations of any amount are crucial to enabling the Academy to provide high-quality arts experiences to all community members regardless of circumstance.



When making an online donation, you have a choice of two Academy funds to give to:


Play It Forward- Provides tuition assistance to the Academy students and their families to continue their arts experiences during this challenging time. To make a donation to this category, enter your donation amount under the “Mason Community Arts Academy Excellence Fund” and add “Play It Forward” in the additional comments section.


Online donations are made via a George Mason University Foundation portal, and donors will receive an official Thank You letter from Mason.


We depend on donations to help fund our programs.
