Women for MACC
Make A Difference. Become An Active Member!
Founded in 1982, Women for MACC (WMACC) is a non-profit charitable organization made up of the mothers, siblings, relatives and concerned women who fight childhood cancer and blood disorders by supporting the MACC Fund through fundraising events.
Since the WMACC’s inception, they’ve contributed over $4.5 million dollars to the MACC Fund and annually raise on average $160,000.
WMACC is run completely by dedicated volunteers and board members with administrative costs funded through yearly membership dues. After those expenses are paid, 100% of net proceeds are donated back to the MACC Fund.
Our events play a significant role in supporting research for pediatric cancer and blood disorders to increase survival but live with fewer life-altering side effects after treatment. Help us make the kids future promising and even brighter by participating in one of our many events.
