Choosing and Supporting The Mechanicville Area Community Services Center, Inc as your favorite Cause or Charity is easy…

  • Choose MACSC as your charity to support from over 118,000+ non-profits and schools.

  • Sign-up to Support Our Cause, select the stores you love to shop at, sit back, relax and of course shop!

  • Spread the word! The more friends that you get involved, the more you’ll be able to raise for MACSC cause.

  • Watch Your Impact…..Imagine a world in which every shopper was a Goodshopper (call us idealistic, but we do believe that it can be possible).  In the U.S. alone, Americans spend $300 billion in e-commerce per year. If even 3% of that revenue was funneled into the nonprofit sector, it would mean a bonus of $90,000,000 every single year – important money needed for these great organizations to be able to continue doing the work we all need them to do. Goodshop started as a crazy idea between two siblings and has grown into a global movement. We’re excited to see how quickly it has picked up speed, and how many people are joyfully hopping on board, in order to help make the world a better place with each purchase. What are you waiting for? Pick MACSC as your non-profit to support, find some great deals, and join us! We couldn’t be more excited.

Community members and Organizations like you are the reason we’re so excited! If you are as passionate as we are about improving the lives of area residents through family support, empowerment, recreation, and education, then we hope you’ll consider supporting the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center.  Help us reach our #GivingTuesday goal.  Remember, your impact amplifies our work.

Our goal can’t happen without your generosity and support.  We’d be honored if you’d choose to celebrate #GivingTuesday with us by helping us reach our #GivingTuesday goal!  It’s quick and easy to make a contribution using our secure Donation Portal.

Make A Change Annual Appeal – #ittakesacommunity 

As we reflect on the past year, we are reminded of the incredible impact that the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center has had on our community.  Our commitment to providing an inclusive space for residents of all ages and a caring environment where anyone in our community can access resources has been unwavering.  MACSC has been a cornerstone of our community, fostering connections, nurturing talents, and providing vital services that enrich the lives of countless individuals. From educational programs and recreational activities to social services and community events, the center has become a hub for positive change and a beacon of hope and support for all.

However, the financial landscape has shifted, and we have seen an increase for the need of Food Programs, Mental Health Services, and Financial Assistance right here in our community!  MACSC Staff have been diligently working to help alleviate the stress and burden that many families are facing, but we are now confronted with increased operating costs, maintenance expenses, and the need for facility improvements.  To continue offering the diverse array of programs and services that our community depends on, we are reaching out to you, our valued supporters, for your help.
