A Night of Hope

MAM is Margaret’s signature fundraising event that occurs annually, since 2013. It’s name is a tongue-in-cheek figure of speech that was intended to reclaim negative language that is often used and contributes to the stigma of mental illness.

The event is aimed at changing the conversation. It’s an inspirational evening packed with an inspirational program where guests and allies gather together to help us keep our programs running.

This year has been hard on all of us, but especially those living with mental illness, substance use, homelessness or a combination. By joining us from the comfort of your own home, you can help make a difference in the lives of women that Margaret’s serves.

You Can Be a Change Maker

Mental illness is a complex problem – it is interwoven with homelessness, marginalization, trauma, addiction, and isolation. But it doesn’t have to be.

Join us in the effort to change the landscape of mental health by giving a voice to those who are unable to speak for themselves. 

We know this work is too big to accomplish alone. By becoming a corporate partner with Margaret’s, your organization will be investing in the continued efforts to provide supportive programming that can change lives for the better. Help us bridge the gap by contributing in support of initiatives focused on bettering the lives of those in our community struggling with the effects of poverty, homelessness, mental health challenges, and addiction.

All the proceeds go directly to support the work that Margaret’s does. The event is sponsored by a number of socially conscious organizations and individuals whose generosity knows no bound.

You can become a change maker too.
