Since 1973, the MPC Endowment Ltd. has been supporting journalism excellence through the people who practice it. The pandemic disrupted opportunities we planned to fund in 2020, including paid newsroom internships for high school students, conferences for college journalists and a student intern for the Milwaukee Press Club. Public health concerns also canceled the MPC Endowment’s chief fundraising event, the Milwaukee Media Hall of Fame Banquet.
The MPC Endowment still awarded thousands of dollars in 2020. It funded scholarships to journalism students at Marquette University, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and UW-Madison, where it named an annual award for Whitney Gould. The MPC Endowment paid for a record number of awards through the Milwaukee Press Club’s Excellence in Journalism Contest. Its grants also included a donation to a scholarship fund for Eugene Kane.
