Make Your Mark

Become an Advocate

Becoming an Advocate is so easy, yet impacts the campaign in tremendous ways! Giving Day Advocates help create excitement and momentum before and during the campaign.

With so many loyal and caring alumni, parents, students, staff, faculty, and friends, we can make a difference for current and future MICA students. Your involvement as a Giving Day Advocate will help us reach our fundraising goal and engaging the community. It's easy, fun, and rewarding!

Use the resources below to demonstrate your MICA pride and spread the word about Giving Day! Every post and email you share leading up to and on MICA’s Giving Day will contribute to the success of the day. Thank you for your support!

How to Become an Advocate:

  1. The first step to becoming an Advocate is to sign up on our MYM Online Platform. Visit and click ‘Sign Up’ in the top right of the page or click here
  2. Consider your own gift!  Great advocates lead by example and you can leverage your gift to encourage others to give!  Offer a match or challenge to incentivize your friends and the community to give!
  3. Create a Personal Plea. A Personal Plea is a quick (selfie) video in which you tell the MICA community why you’re excited about the campaign, and why others should get involved.
  4. Share the campaign link. When you use the buttons to share the campaign link while logged into your GiveCampus user account, the number of clicks, gifts, and dollars generated by your outreach will be tracked next to your name on the Advocates tab.
