$5 per month — Friend of the Gallery
Your monthly donation creates a scholarship for an emerging or student artist to attend one of our classes. To maintain our commitment to serving under-represented artists and communities, our workshops are priced on a sliding scale and scholarships are available for those without the means to pay. MBNCA believes that a vibrant creative life should be accessible to ALL.

$15 per month — Community Builder
For only $15 per month, community builders help us create the funds to purchase most of our gallery services (printing, catering, design, supplies and more) from South Seattle-based businesses. We  support local businesses whenever possible.

$25 per month — Patron of the Arts
Gifts of this level help support the gallery to create unique exhibitions and showcase artists of all abilities. Many of our programs are non-commercial in nature, such as our yearly exhibition of Franklin High School students, and your patronage helps us create exhibitions that serve emerging artists.

$50 per month — South Seattle Super Hero
The South Seattle area is under-served in the arts. MBNCA fills a unique need by not only showcasing many local, neighborhood artists, but also providing an inclusive gathering place and learning center for the South Seattle area. We welcome students, audiences, and artists of ALL abilities. Your support makes our community grow.

$100 — Visionary Change Maker
You are a rock-star! Support at this level allows MBNCA to create brand new programs that serve special groups of people, such as our programs for elders with memory loss, workshops for artists with visual disabilities, exhibitions that celebrate the cultural heritage of our neighbors, and much more. We believe that creativity should be accessible to ALL and we are dedicated to the creation of programs that expand our inclusive community.

Your support is deeply appreciated!
