Once again, MCA is taking part in #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
This is a great opportunity to raise funds for your organization. Learn how you can sign up for #GivingTuesday by clicking here.
Have you seen something in a past issue of Camp Ping Weekly and want to see it again. There is an archive of stored issues in the Members Only Section of the MCA website.
Throughout the year, we work hard to identify, develop and deliver effective, engaging and relevant training to boards, staff and volunteers.
Our in-house workshops are a great way to build those essential skills needed to further your career in the non-profit and voluntary sectors.
Bryan Wall from St. John Ambulance has let the MCA know that he is offering preferred pricing to our Member Camps for all training events.
Member Camps can also receive preferred pricing on AEDs
purchased from Bryan as well.
