As a non-profit organization, MMC relies on contributions from the community – individuals and corporations – in addition to other sources of funding noted on our home page. All funding sources enable the Midlands Mediation Center to offer low-cost mediation services to individuals, couples, and families who would not otherwise be able to afford legal fees and extended involvement in the court.

All gifts are tax deductible to the extent of the law.
In 2016 we launched our Multi-Year Giving Society for donors who pledge gifts of $300, $600 or $1,200/year for three or five years. It is an excellent option for those who recognize Midlands Mediation Center’s ongoing need to sponsor families’ mediations and assure that people with low incomes will have a place to take care of important legal matters where mediation is required or most suitable. Please contact Lee Morriss, Development Manager or Kabrina Bass, Executive Director to express your interest and arrange your individual giving preferences.
Special thanks to our 11 inaugural Multi-Year Giving Society Members, and the six additional people who have joined since then.
