Raise Your Paddle
Where do the Auction Proceeds Go?
Everyone wins when you participate in Raise Your Paddle, our annual appeal for outright contributions to our student scholarship fund. We are thrilled to report a record-breaking response to the Raise Your Paddle portion of this year's Auction, which has raised over $115,000 in critical funds to help MassArt students cross the finish line!
On average, more than 90% of MassArt students are awarded financial aid each year and that support remains critical in order for them to pursue their education. Your gift, of any amount, ensures that MassArt will remain affordable and accessible for the next generation of artists, designers, and art educators.
Beginning in 2021, we are now designating funds raised from our annual Raise Your Paddle appeal to the newly created Finish Line Fund. We were concerned that some MassArt seniors were at risk of not graduating on time due to financial pressures brought on by the pandemic and wanted to do whatever we could to help them cross the finish line to graduation, which was the reason this fund was created. Thanks to the support of our generous donors at last year’s Auction, we raised enough money to help 30 seniors graduate from MassArt! We know that the funds raised will positively impact the lives of more students again this year.
When you support our students with a Raise Your Paddle gift, you make it possible for generations of students to make the world a better place through the power of art and design.
Change a student’s life – MassArt students are worth the investment. Thank you for Raising Your Paddle!
