The Stewart Family #GivingTuesday Match

This holiday season, when you donate to KCAI's Annual Fund, you'll spread a little more cheer with a matching gift from the Stewart Family.

Justin Stewart and Mamie Kanfer Stewart will match up to $7,500 of all gifts given online to this campaign from Nov. 21 to #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28.

#GivingTuesday kicks off the annual holiday giving season on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, following the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Give back to KCAI students, faculty and staff that work to transform the world creatively through art and design.

Over 98% of KCAI students receive some form of financial aid or scholarship support in order to fulfill their dreams of becoming an artist or designer. KCAI's Annual Fund directly underwrites these student scholarships, allowing students to realize their full potential in college and in life. When you give to the Annual Fund, you help ensure that higher education in art and design remains accessible for all students like Jean and Sophia in our Kansas City community.

Thank you for supporting KCAI and our students.

Thanks To Our Recent Donors!

  • I love the Kansas City Art Institute. A gem. Michael Rees Class of '83.

  • I am happy that I started my undergrad study at KCAI with Justin and an amazing crew of artists in 1999. It is possible for me to say that I am still learning from that first year of foundations together. Sending love from Detroit.
