Anniversary Endowment Appeal


I hope you are enjoying celebrating #50YearsTogether with MMA this year. It has been fun to share photos and stories from our history in the MMA Review, and we are excited for our in-person celebration at the Annual Conference in October. We know that being together is what MMA is all about!

As we spend time thinking about the ups and downs of the organization over the past half-century, it's easy to see that funding, especially for staffing, has been a core indicator of the health and level of service MMA provides. We want to make sure that MMA has at least #50MoreYearsTogether and on May 12, at the Anniversary & Awards Celebration, we announced a special anniversary campaign to grow the MMA endowment. 

In celebration of our 50th anniversary, we are having a special campaign to grow the endowment by at least $50,000. Our goal is to have 50 people donate (or pledge) $1,000 by the end of our anniversary year. We already have 11 anniversary campaign $1000 donations or pledges and we are just getting started. Only 39 more to meet our goal!

We hope you consider helping us ensure that MMA is healthy and strong for at least #50MoreYearsTogether. 


The Capitol Area Community Foundation in Lansing is the home of the MMA Endowment. Gifts can be made directly on their website, including recurring donations.

Pledges can be made using this form.
