40 for 40 Challenge

    Celebrate MFTA’s 40th anniversary by contributing only $40 before the end of the year and help us raise $10,000! Donate now >

    Since 1978, MFTA has been the largest supplier of materials to thousands of organizations, and in turn to millions of New Yorkers. But we have not done it alone. With your support, we have been able to keep materials out of the landfill, enable the arts community to flourish and provide valuable resources to public schools.

    Last year alone, we served 20,877 students, 4,811 school staff, and 5,583 members of the public through educational programs.

    The Liman Foundation, a long-time generous supporter, has challenged Friends of the Materials for the Arts to raise $10,000 in the last 40 days of MFTA’s 40th year. If 250 people give a gift of $40, we can reach our goal!

    Your support will go towards all of MFTA’s programming and community outreach initiatives, including free school field trips, increased donation pick-up and the Artist-in-Residence program.

    Share in MFTA’s 40th birthday fun! Post pics of you bringing the art of Creative REuse to life!
