You can help support scholastic journalism by sponsoring a student media program’s membership in MIPA! Designate a specific program you’d like to support or let MIPA decide based on need.
MIPA membership unlocks a variety of benefits for student media programs, including no-cost professional development opportunities for teachers, reduced MIPA event registration fees for students and access to MIPA’s annual contests.
Membership in MIPA normally costs $47.50 annually for one student media program, and $15 each for any additional media programs at a school.
- $47.50 supports MIPA membership for 1 school with 1 media program
- $62.50 supports membership for 1 school with 2 media programs
- $77.50 supports membership for 1 school with 3 media programs
- $92.50 supports membership for 1 school with 4 media programs
Thank you for helping MIPA support journalism at middle and high schools throughout Michigan with your gift!
Designating the recipient of your gift
If you would like your gift used to support a specific school or student media program, please indicate so in the Order Notes field of the checkout page. You may also contact us directly at 517-353-6761 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that designating a specific beneficiary may limit whether your gift is tax deductible. We advise you consult your tax adviser.
Is this sponsorship tax deductible?
Donations earmarked for a specific beneficiary generally are not tax deductible under IRS regulations. So, if you want to sponsor a specific school or student media program with your gift to MIPA, your gift to MIPA likely is not tax deductible.
However, most other donations to MIPA in which the organization maintains discretion and control over the gift are tax deductible to the full extent provided by law. We advise that all donors consult their tax adviser with any questions about the tax implications of a gift.
Your gift may be worth more than you think!
Make every dollar count. Your employer or your spouse’s employer may match donations. You might be able to double your gift by filling out a simple matching gift form, usually available from your human resources department.
Donations made in honor or memory of someone
If you are making a gift in honor or memory of someone, please indicate so in the comment field of the checkout page. You may also contact us directly at 517-353-6761 or email@example.com.
MIPA may recognize donors by name in various reports and publications and may share addresses of donors to the Jeff Nardone Scholarship with the Nardone family. Otherwise, MIPA does not sell or share personal information about our donors beyond what is required by law. If you prefer that your gift remains anonymous, please indicate so in the Comments field of the checkout page. You may also contact us directly at 517-353-6761 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
