Almost all that has been achieved at MACS since it opened in 1994 has been done through the extraordinary generosity of our extended community. For tomorrow, we envisage an even better service that continues to bring care, comfort and joy to the lives of very special people. Please, help us make that happen.
MACS Board of Directors is planning for a sustainable future for the MACS facility, programs and services. We want our senior community (and our staff) to have confidence in MACS always being here.
The Board has established a foundation which receives donations and invests them for the future. Your simple act of generosity, via a donation or bequest can make a world of difference.
MACS Bequest Program
A bequest in your will is a simple and lasting gift which will help the MACS Foundation build a certain and confident future for our community. We encourage you to discuss options with your family and your solicitor. You might choose to bequest all or part of your residual estate after you have considered your family and friends or you might consider leaving a particular asset or amount of money.
Annual Giving 2017
The wellbeing (body, mind and spirit) of our residents and home care consumers is our number one priority at MACS. We want to encourage residents and home care consumers to keep active, engaged and enjoying life, so our focus this year is on raising funds for a new walking track which will circle the perimeter of MACS residential facility and to establish a supermarket in the piazza.
The walking track will become part of our Mindful Moves program and encourage residents and home care consumers to become more active. MACS Mindful Moves program is an international award winning program and further funding will take it to the next level. There will be strategically placed outdoor exercise equipment on the track and for those less mobile, it will be full of points of interest, places to sit, art pieces to start a conversation, games to play, fragrant flowers and herbs providing sensory enjoyment by smelling, touching and picking.
The supermarket will be a further enhancement to the piazza area and will create a village-like atmosphere, along with the existing boutique, post office, café, bakery, hairdresser and the internet café. Residents will be able to do some shopping just as if they were at home. It doesn’t matter if they don’t need their purchases as we can quietly return them and they can come back and purchase them again the next day if they wish.
To fund the walking track and establish the supermarket will cost approximately $25,000 so your support would be truly appreciated. It will make such a difference to our community.
Your donation is a gift that helps us to enrich the lives of MACS’ elderly residents from Borrela House, Mary Costa House, Annie O’Malley House, Gerda’s House, Independent Living Units, Bella Chara and our home care consumers.
