Stand with Ukraine
March 24th, 2022
Time and time again, The Music Institute of Chicago community has proven how it genuinely cares about people. From the 2011 Tsunami concert raising funds for a Japanese orphanage, to a call for supplies to survivors and their children at the YWCA domestic violence shelter, MIC staff, faculty, and families have proven their deep compassion for those in anguish.
Help MIC Collect Medical Supplies
As Ukrainians flee their homes, there has never been a more urgent time for a humanitarian call to action. The Music Institute of Chicago will provide donation boxes at the front desks at each campus to help support over three million people in need of assistance. MIC will be collecting medical supplies that will be shipped to The Ukrainian Medical Association of North America (UMANA), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing medical aid, medical education, and sharing medical science with Ukrainian peers across the globe. This gesture on our part will make an enormous difference in the lives of so many hoping and praying for charitable efforts across the globe.
UMANA recognizes the need for medications and medical supplies.
