Donations and Bequests

So much of what we provide at MACS – from our second-to-none social and lifestyle 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 clients, residents, 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.
MACS Bequest Program
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.
Annual Giving 2017
The wellbeing (body, mind and spirit) of our residents and home care clients is our number one priority at MACS. We want to encourage residents and home care clients to stay active, engaged and enjoying life.
In 2017, our annual giving program will raise funds for a new walking track, which will circle the perimeter of the MACS precinct in North Geelong. Funds will also be used to establish a small supermarket in our piazza.
The walking track will become part of our award-winning Mindful Moves program, and encourage residents and home care clients to become more active. 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 installations to start a conversation, games to play, and fragrant flowers and herbs providing sensory enjoyment.
The supermarket will further enhance 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!
The walking track and supermarket will cost approximately $25,000 so your support would be truly appreciated. It will make such a difference to our community.
