The MEG’s Gift Board of Directors announced that the primary beneficiary of its 2019 fundraising will be the
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
Funds will be used to support many programs including Soul Shop for faith leaders, Suicide Bereavement Clinician Training, national speakers for schools such as Hakeem Rahim, SafeSide training for medical professionals, free "Talk Saves Lives" community programs, and many more!
The local chapter of
NAMI, National Alliance on Mental Illness
was selected to be the 2018 main beneficiary of our fundraising efforts.
MEG's Gift wants to continue to make a difference in the lives of our children. Help our youth to be aware of the early warning signs of Mental Health conditions and show them that they are not alone and there is hope.
Two local organizations with expertise in training were selected to be the primary beneficiaries of fundraising efforts - the
Consortium on Trauma, Illness and Grief in Schools (TIG) and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
We chose to invest in our children and decided to support programs that educate teachers, other school staff, parents and students on mental health issues facing our children.
In 2016 we focused on helping our veterans and chose the Veterans Outreach Center
as our main beneficiary.
The local VOC non-profit was chosen by MEG’s Gift to provide funds for those members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families who are struggling with mental illness and other challenges associated with re-entering civilian life after serving their country.
