Do I need to let the MCC know in advance that I am planning to donate an artwork?

Can I donate more than one artwork?

This Art Auction can be of direct benefit to donating artists with a range of donation percentages to choose from – 50% 75% or 100%. We do ask that you consider a full donation whenever possible. Artists must choose what percentage to donate when dropping off the work and indicate the choice on the artist contract. Should the work sell, artists who choose to retain a percentage will be issued a cheque from the MCC that will be mailed to them along with the charitable tax receipt for the donated .
I’m not a member of the MCC. Can I still donate?
Yes, the MCC gratefully welcomes donations from members and non-members alike. We very much appreciate donations of artwork from artists. We couldn’t do this fundraiser without our valued artist donors.
