Help Keep Local Journalism Strong!

Donations welcome for challenge grant and new scholarship fund

Please include the MPC (Milwaukee Press Club) Endowment in your year-end charitable giving. After nearly 50 years of supporting journalism excellence, the Endowment has two new funds through which donors can direct their contributions.

Bob Wills Freedom of Information Fund

The MPC Endowment will match up to $5,000 in new donations to the Bob Wills FOI Fund, defending journalistic freedoms and First Amendment rights. Established in September, the fund honors the late Milwaukee newspaper leader, who helped found the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council.

Meg Jones Scholarship Fund

In November, the Meg Jones Scholarship joined other separate funds maintained by the MPC Endowment to assist and inspire the next generation of journalists. Other funds include the Tim Cuprisin Memorial Fund, the Eric Miller PantherVision Scholarship and the Don Walker Memorial Scholarship.

Donate online, or mail your check to:
1505 N 119th St
Wauwatosa WI 53226-3241

Please designate which fund you wish your contributions to benefit. (Online, name your preference under “Special instructions to the seller.”) The MPC Endowment also welcomes donations to its general fund.

Donate by Dec. 31, 2021, to take advantage of charitable donations for income tax reporting.
