Local Journalism Needs Your Support and Care

Consider the MPC Endowment in your charitable giving this holiday season.

Just after Thanksgiving, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee shared a thank-you from a student who’s receiving a scholarship administered by the MPC Endowment.

This scholarship is an invisible, caring hand that sees my dreams and goals and offers aid. This scholarship tells me that no matter how lonely and frustrating the process may be, I will have someone there to support me and my dreams.

We tend to focus on the money – how much can we raise, how much can we give, how much does a journalism student need to earn and borrow to pay for college? But a common response from beneficiaries of MPC Endowment funds is that they’re grateful that someone outside of their family cares enough to invest in who they aspire to be.

Please join us in caring for the next generation of journalists. This year, the Endowment presented a record $30,000 in scholarships, grants and awards. Next year, we celebrate 50 years of supporting journalists like Glendalys – and their dreams. Your generosity sustains our efforts.
