Thank you to everyone who so generously supported our 2019 Annual Giving Appeal. A total of $18,000 was raised which enabled the installation of a fully integrated sound system for the outdoor piazza.
We need not tell you that everyone is facing challenging and confronting times during the COVID-19 pandemic. Making sure that we keep ourselves, our families and our friends healthy has understandably become a priority for everyone.
However, what is also true is that the most vulnerable in our community, the frail and elderly, have also become more vulnerable than ever before.
MACS’ vision of ‘culturally diverse individuals living life to the full’ is just as important today as it has always been. Despite having to close the facility to visitors we have implemented programs to keep our residents and home care consumers engaged and connected to their families and friends during this difficult time.
With your support, our 2020 Annual Giving Appeal will focus on raising $20,000 on ‘beautifying’ a long term lease of a 590m² piece of vacant land that MACS has been fortunate to secure from COGG.
We hope to transform this space with outdoor exercise equipment and musical instruments to assist residents and home care consumers to express themselves, improve cognitive skills, encourage social interactions and provide a fantastic opportunity for going outdoors to enjoy the open air. Music is a global artistic language that creates community and friendship. The interactive ‘sculptures’ are of true percussion instruments, suitable for musical beginners and experts alike, to play and enjoy – creating a full sensory experience .
Will you please give generously to help MACS’ residents and home care consumers keep active, engaged and enjoying life? You can make a tax deductible donation to this year’s Annual Giving Appeal here or if you’d like more information or have questions, please do not hesitate to call us on (03) 5279 6800.
Once again, we give our sincere thanks to our 2019 benefactors and our entire MACS community for their ongoing support.
So much of what we provide at MACS – from our second-to-none social and Well-being programs, to our wonderful facilities and onsite services for our residents – has been achieved thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our extended community.
We have a strategic plan for the sustainability of MACS into the future. We want our residents , home care consumers, staff and community to have confidence that MACS will always be here. Donating to MACS is one way you can help us to continue our exceptional service that brings the best care, comfort and joy to the lives of very special people.
The MACS Foundation was established to receive donations and invest them for the future. A simple act of generosity via a donation or bequest, no matter how big or small, can make a world of difference.
Making a bequest in your will is a lasting gift that will help the MACS Foundation create a sustainable 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.
