This #GivingTuesday Help Families Make an Impact with State Legislators!

Beth Hess - Monday, November 26, 2018

This February, Maryland families will gather at the state capital in Annapolis to raise their voices in support of critical behavioral health issues.

Donate now to support MCF's #GivingTuesday initiative – our 19th Annual Family Day in Annapolis.

Your donation will:

$25  

Educate 5 legislators on behavioral health issues by providing brochures, flyers and talking points to families

$40  

Send 1 family member to Annapolis for Family Day, including round trip transportation, materials and breakfast

$80  

Send 2 family members to Annapolis for Family Day, including round trip transportation, materials and breakfast

$120  

Host 10 family members at our Legislative Breakfast, fueling their efforts during Family Day

$250  

Transport 10 family members by bus from their community to Annapolis

$500    

Transport 20 family members by bus from their community to Annapolis

Last year, donations from individuals and organizational partners like you helped to bring together nearly 200 family members and key partners to influence legislators.

This activism helped to:

  • Ensure funding to expand crisis services throughout the state
  • Increase compensation for behavioral health providers
  • Ensure transparency by state agencies regarding the delivery of children’s behavioral health services by requiring that key data be reported.
Any amount you can give will be appreciated; 100% of all donations will be used to support families in raising their voices at Family Day in Annapolis.
 
Together, we can make a difference!

 

Or donate by check paid to, “Maryland Coalition of Families” and mail to: MCF, 10632 Little Patuxent Parkway, Suite 234, Columbia, MD 21044
