Golf for Girls 2018 was a HUGE success! We want to thank everyone involved in the event from all of our amazing volunteers and our awesome celebrities, to our wonderful golfers and our incredibly generous sponsors! We had a full day of raising money, drinking Champagne and there was a little golf in there too. This was by far our best year with a sold out tournament – raising $73,333!
Looking for a summer job? Love giving back to the community? We’ve got exciting news! We’ve applied for 3 Canada Summer Jobs Program Grants for 3 fabulous Summer Students this year!
It’s National Volunteer Week – celebrated this year from April 15-21 across Canada. It’s Made by Momma’s chance as a non-profit organization to say thanks and to show our heartfelt appreciation to our core – our volunteers – simply without whom we would not exist!
To our valued Made by Momma supporters,
We want to wish you a heartfelt Happy Holidays and thank you for all of your support in 2017.
With your support we showed families in our city that they are not alone during challenging times. The families who came to us this past year had nowhere else to turn and we are grateful to everyone who helped us be there when their needs were greatest.
Made by Momma was honoured and ecstatic to be among the top 3 charities chosen by the CREB Charitable Foundation to receive an Investing in Hope grant. It was an extremely tough competition this year with an extensive application and vetting process. Made by Momma was among major inspiration and really felt like “the new kid on the block” making the top 3 with established charities Inn From the Cold and Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta. What a feat for us at only 7 years old!! We came in third and were awarded a grant of $75,000!!! This money goes directly to supporting our clients to help with food security and baby essentials.
2016 was another incredibly busy year for our Made by Momma team! We experienced growth in many ways. We helped over 300 more families in 2016 than the previous year, our NICU Family Meals program has become fully integrated into the PLC and SHC hospital’s Neonatal and Intensive Care Units and The Happy Birthday Project hit the ground running, providing over 1000 birthday party packages to kids who would otherwise go without a celebration. We also had plenty of opportunities for community engagement and sharing our message.
Thank you to Donna Korchinski for coming down to the Made by Momma Resource Centre and learning more about what we do as an organization and helping us share what our most urgent needs are: baby essentials like diapers, and financial donations to help us renovate our Resource Centre so we’ll have more space to continue our work.
Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization – their time, energy and dedication is how we are able to fulfill our mission day after day. ♥
As National Volunteer Week 2016 comes to a close, we want to acknowledge and profile a few of of our amazing volunteers that truly make a difference to our organization.
As you know, Made by Momma supports families in Calgary and surrounding communities when they are experiencing times of adversity or crisis. But sometimes we extend our reach a little further if we can.
2014 was another successful year for Made by Momma. The year was filled with amazing opportunities, community involvement and meaningful partnerships. We also had an increase in client referrals and requests for our services within the community.
