Each year through a nominating and voting process, members select a group of local nonprofits to be Annual Beneficiaries. With these organizations in mind, MWA gets to work hosting fundraising events and collecting donations for the year. At year-end, all proceeds are distributed to the beneficiaries to support their continued service and contributions to the community.
Members of MWA not only raise funds for local nonprofits, but we also support these organizations through donation drives and volunteer work – an essential component of MWA’s mission to serve the community. MWA is actively involved in meal making for Caring for Friends, organizing events for the young residents of FSA’s Homeless Shelter, keeping their three-mile stretch of Edgewood Road in Lower Makefield clean through Adopt-a-Highway, and many more.

Bucks for Kids
Everyone does better when they have someone in their corner rooting for them. Even more than other kids, Foster Kids need the “EXTRAS” often denied to them. Every month, the Foster Children’s caseworkers apply to Bucks for Kids on behalf of individual children explaining their particular unmet need and Bucks for Kids funds the activity or item. Typical Requests include funds for tutoring, music lessons, clothing, beds, uniforms, computers, graduation and prom expenses, college application fees, class trips, and many other “extras” that other kids take for granted.
