MCA Denver continues to be dedicated to offering free admission to all youth, aged 0-18. Funding for this program was originally provided by the Merage Foundation three years ago, and since then we have grown our youth audience from 1000 to 5000 visitors! In December 2015, a new donor has initiated a $100,000 challenge grant so that we can continue this program for the next three years.

Ways to give to MCA Denver
When you make a gift to MCA Denver, your contribution can be put to work immediately by providing funding for current exhibitions and programs. A gift may be composed of almost any asset of value
Cash gifts are the simplest and easiest gifts you can make. Cash gifts can be made through credit/debit card transactions, personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders made payable to MCA Denver.
MCA Denver welcomes your gift through a pledge or formal statement of intention to make a gift to the Museum. With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time, allowing you to give more generously than you originally may have considered. What is more, each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax charitable deduction.
GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES, STOCKS, AND BONDS
These gifts provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to MCA Denver before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a twofold tax benefit, creating an income-tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital-gains tax that would have been due on their sale. If you wish to transfer stocks from a brokers account, contact email@example.com
IRA QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTIONS (QCD)
An individual who is age 70 1/2 or older can make a qualified charitable distribution directly from their IRA to a qualified charity. An IRA owner can make up to $100,000 in charitable gifts to 501(c)3 organizations such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, and this QCD can be used to satisfy any IRA required minimum distributions for the year. In addition, the amount of the QCD excluded from gross income is not taken into account in determining any deduction for charitable contributions.
