Write [y]our story by making a gift to the Annual Fund today!

All great stories begin with a journey. Ours began 132 years ago with a sketch club that has transformed into a celebrated college of art and design, the Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI).

Today, students choose KCAI because we offer an experience that allows students to realize their full potential. We do this by providing a rigorous curriculum, robust internship program, and access to cutting-edge technology that’s designed for the 21st-century student.

Thanks To Our Supporters!

  • My education at Kansas City Art Institute was a major event in my life in 1959 and I continue to support it ; thanks for such a wonderful start to my career.

Be the First 100!

As a token of our appreciation to the first 100 of those who make a gift of $100 or more, we wish to share an original limited edition set of wooden coasters by Nathan Neufeld, 2015 graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute in ceramics.

Students also choose KCAI because of generous scholarship support. We provide financial aid and scholarships to more than 95% of students, because we know that affordability is a real issue for families. Scholarships give students the help they need to graduate and go on to have thriving careers as architects, professors, graphic designers, furniture makers, curators, and college presidents. In fact, KCAI alumni currently work in all of these professions plus many more.

Why are donations necessary?

When you give to the Annual Fund, you help a student realize their full potential in college and in life as they contribute to the economic and cultural vibrancy in the community. Help KCAI students prepare for the next chapter in their journey to the creative workforce.
