Thank you for your support.

MAC does not accept funding from public institutions that would create a conflict-of-interest and compromise our independence or the effectiveness of our advocacy. We therefore rely extensively on the generosity of private foundations and individuals. We thank the many individuals and corporate donors who give so generously to MAC.
