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.

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.
