Kansas City Art Institute Recieves $25 Million Donation
$25 million has been donated to the Kansas City Art Institute from an anonymous donor. The funding includes $14 million for a general endowment. Five million dollars will go toward campus improvements, including maintenance on buildings and landscaping projects. Six million dollars, in the form of a challenge grant, will be used for student scholarships, endowed professorships and visiting professors. Through Dec. 31, 2016, an anonymous fund at the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation will match and double any donation KCAI receives from outside sources up to a total of $6 million. The donation is particularly exciting with all the arts across the country taking a hit to funding and resources available. For more information, visit KCAI on the Web at www.kcai.edu.
