Make A Difference. Become An Active Member!
Women for MACC (WMACC) is a non-profit, charitable organization bringing hope to families through research and awareness to end childhood cancer and related blood disorders. The road toward a cure is a long one, but since their foundation in 1982, Women for MACC has helped to shorten the journey by contributing more than $5 Million to the MACC Fund for crucial childhood cancer and related blood disorder research.
A large part of Women for MACC’s success is the tireless volunteer support at all levels from members who serve on their board of directors to volunteers that help with their events. Thanks to their efforts, Women for MACC has no paid employees, and all operating and administrative costs are funded through yearly membership dues.
Women for MACC is an event-run organization, raising money through the events that they plan. After event expenses are paid, 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the MACC Fund. In order to keep expenses as low as possible, Women for MACC relies on donations and sponsorships to help make their events successful. Our goal is to keep expenses as low as possible. In order to do that, we rely on donations and sponsorships to help make our events successful.
When you join Women for MACC, you’re committing to fight against childhood cancer and related blood disorders. Your membership dues provide the financial support necessary for WMACC’s operating expenses. All event profits and donations go directly to the MACC Fund.
Members can help in a variety of ways with different degrees of time commitment from addressing envelopes, getting auction items and assisting with communication plans – there are plenty of opportunities to make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer.
