Dear Adoption Community,
In light of current circumstances, we are postponing our 2020 Gala “Mothers in May, An Evening of Honoring Birthmothers”, until Fall. However, we are asking you to ensure our vital services remain in place for birthmothers in the coming months by “paying it forward” and making a partial or full sponsorship contribution TODAY. Our organization operates on a very limited budget and you play a vital role in our community through your support of our mental health and support services for our clients during this stressful time in all of our lives.
As birthmothers, we know the crucial transformation MPower Alliance/OYFF has had on our lives and the lives of hundreds of other birthmothers. Your sponsorship demonstrates your commitment to social justice for birthmothers. This means embracing the future MPA envisions where birthmothers are connected to each other and resources. Where they are honored and empowered to build their own lives, leaving the past behind when birthmothers were isolated and stigmatized, and forgotten after placement.
With the continued focus on serving birthmothers, we are excited to provide an update on our new branding. We’ve taken major steps forward to establish our new brand that resonates with our approach of empowerment. Even though we have a new name, we are still very much aimed at reinforcing our founders’ commitment to supporting birthmothers and further establishing us as a leader in the birthmother empowerment movement. We look forward to a very exciting year ahead!
Our Gala program will highlight the vital role MPA has played in transforming birthmothers’ lives. We will interview one of our academic grant recipients about how an academic grant has empowered her. Then, we’ll hear first-hand from our clients about the valuable connections they’ve created within the MPA community. Again, this year we will present a series of awards to honor individuals who have gone above and beyond to support birthmother empowerment. We hope you can join us in repeating last year’s standing ovation!
As the only non-profit in California focused on birthmothers, we have a vision to diversify our clientele, broaden our resource network, and strengthen adoptive families by incorporating new technology. Your sponsorship TODAY will ensure that we can continue this vision in the coming months until we can gather as a community in the Fall.
We hope to include you in our “Mothers in May, An Evening of Honoring Birthmothers” program and media as a sponsor. Please click here to donate:
