Shining a Spotlight on MCC’s Charities

The 2020 MCC was entirely virtual, which meant we didn’t host in-person charity fairs. Instead, each week of the Campaign, we shone a spotlight on the MCC’s causes that help improve our world in myriad ways.

Throughout the 2020 MCC, we featured every single participating charity—all 1,000 of them—listing them based on their IRS groupings. We featured each charity only once, but keep in mind that most charities address more than one cause.

Below is the calendar of causes. Once you find your favorite, take note of which month it appears, then:
