As May Court members, women of every age join forces to make a difference in their community. While working together to raise funds or directly assist organizations in the Niagara Region, May Courters also take time to enjoy one another's company, and to help the Club be the best it can be. Find out more about Membership.
May Court works closely with others in St. Catharines and the Niagara Region. We maintain contact with organizations which may need volunteers or other support within our mission (see below), and we try to match their needs with our members' volunteering interests. There are also plenty of opportunities to volunteer for activities within the Club itself. Contact Us to find out more.
FUNDRAISING FOR COMMUNITY NEEDS
Every year, MCCSC holds fundraisers that raise the money we distribute annually to organizations in the Niagara Region. These fundraisers are an important part of the May Court year, and they're initiated, organized and presented by our members. They're a great opportunity to enjoy working with fellow-members to achieve a very rewarding goal. Find out more about Fundraising.
PARTNERS, SUPPORTERS & FRIENDS
All the money we raise is redistributed as grants for programs in our communities. Each year we request applications for funding from many local organizations, and we distribute the funds we've raised to programs that reflect the Club's mission.
As just one of many organizations carrying out fundraising in the community, May Court recognizes the importance of those who contribute to May Court's efforts. We appreciate the generosity of their donations, whether in gifts of kind, money, or time.
