The artists creating our nation’s heritage are with us today. Join the Medici Circle and become a guardian of the future for these influential artists of tomorrow!
The Medici Circle takes its name from the noted Italian family of art patrons who lived in Florence and Tuscany during the Renaissance. Like its namesake, The Medici Circle provides a core of support for the artistic future of our finest young artists and scholars. Members enjoy privileges that bring them “behind the scenes” of the College of Fine Arts to interact with the students and faculty who bring the arts alive in our programs.
YOUR MEDICI CIRCLE GIFT BUILDS THE FINE ARTS FUND FOR EXCELLENCE WHICH PROMOTES:
- Study or travel for students
- Visiting artists and scholars
- Faculty enrichment to foster excellence in teaching
- Research grants and new initiatives
Membership in the Medici Circle offers rewards that last a lifetime, knowing your gift has a direct and lasting impact on students and faculty. Their accomplishments — which would not be possible without your support — increase the reputation and visibility of our academic programs, and of the College.
MEDICI SCHOLAR PROGRAM
Our annual Medici Scholar and Donor Luncheon offers you the opportunity to hear from all the current Medici Scholars first-hand, and learn just how important this experience is for them. Here, you will discover how your generosity personally impacts their academic and professional careers.
Medici Circle support provides for both student and faculty experiences. In addition to student summer programs, your gift also enables the Dean to award small grants to faculty used to fund research trips and projects in a variety of focus areas. Membership includes the opportunity to attend a Small Grants Reception to hear about the many projects made possible through the Medici Circle program
ANNUAL MEDICI CIRCLE MEMBERSHIP $2,000 (includes one Medici Scholar) An additional gift of $1,000 supports a second student’s life-changing experience. There is no limit to how many scholars you can support.
LIFETIME MEDICI CIRCLE MEMBERSHIP One-time gift of $25,000 or planned gifts valued at $100,000 to the CFA Fund for Excellence. Your leadership is what fuels our future. We look forward to including you on “insider opportunities” throughout the year that will give you a unique personal perspective on the hard work, discipline and commitment of our students and faculty.
