Welcome to our website. "The purpose of MADCAPS is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service to and support of established philanthropic organizations. To further this purpose, mothers will actively nurture the training of their daughters in philanthropic commitments, teaching personal responsibility, as well as responsibility to the needs of others, so that all members may fully realize the benefits of involvement in the community."
Hello and welcome! I am so honored to serve as this year's Board President and am excited to reconnect with our membership and community at large. The past few years have been challenging to say the least but as we begin this new post-pandemic season, we look forward with optimism and renewed commitment to doing what MADCAPS does best...serving our community! Our mission is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service to and support of established philanthropic organizations. To further this purpose, mothers actively nurture the training of their daughters in philanthropic commitments, teaching personal responsibility as well as responsibility to the needs of others. Our goal is that all members may fully realize the benefits of involvement in the community. I am enormously proud of our membership and know that together, we CAN and WILL do some wonderful things!
This summer, our members have returned to in-person volunteering which has reignited our mission of service and passion for engaging in our communities. From serving food at Father Joe's Village to swinging hammers at Habitat for Humanity, our members are making a real difference in the communities we serve. We can hardly wait to meet up with everyone at our all member general meeting in September to introduce our dynamic board, share information about our philanthropies, and reconnect . We look forward to welcoming our newest members from the Class of 2028 and introducing them to the many reasons we love being a part of MADCAPS.
Please reach out to me with any questions, concerns, new volunteer opportunities, and fresh ideas on how to continue to make MADCAPS amazing for its membership and our communities.
