Center for Metal Arts is a registered 501(c)3 Not-for-Profit. We receive donations regularly to help support our operations and scholarships. All donations are tax-deductible to fullest extent permitted by the law. We have two funds in which you may donate. The first fund is our general operating fund. This fund allows CMA to make necessary upgrades to our facility each year, allows us to do yearly maintenance, and helps us operate day-to-day. Our second fund is our scholarship fund. This fund allows us to grant scholarships to students who otherwise would not be able to attend a workshop.
With our efforts to keep the fees associated with our program affordable, we are seeking sponsors to support scholarships for those students in financial need. By supporting a scholarship, your tax-deductible donation will be providing a unique opportunity for one or more of our eager students to learn a new skill set with our talented instructors and bring people from all over the world to Johnstown, PA. We greatly appreciate your interest in helping us broaden access and enhance the diversity of our student population.
Gifts of any size are welcome as a contribution to our scholarship program. The box below indicates the specific amounts of our extended-workshops in order to provide one student with a full or half tuition scholarship.
