WAYS TO HELP MCC
Make a Donation
Making a financial donation to MCC is your opportunity to help resolve conflict, increase understanding, improve communication, and preserve relationships.
We depend on donations from our supporters to:
- make mediation available to everyone regardless of their ability to pay. We offer a sliding fee scale for low-income clients.
- mediate court referrals at no cost to the clients. We are reimbursed only a fraction of our cost to provide this service.
- provide workshops and co-parenting classes at reduced fees in order to educate the public on effective ways to resolve conflict.
- provide training to our volunteers.
To make a donation, send a check to MCC, Box 133, Charlottesville, VA 22902, or click on the PayPal link at the top of this page. Thank you!
