Charity Efforts

We have long supported three charities:  MSF/Doctors without Borders, The Global Fund for Women, and Heifer International. Why do we ask you to join us in supporting these exceptional charities?

  • They help people who need them without regard to politics.
  • They build equality and participation in society to create a more just and sustainable world.
  • Their work is life giving and will benefit the next generation that follows.

We have introduced this year an online giving opportunity that is secure and all donations go directly to the charity of your choice. Each of the Madrona Charity Partners has created an option for supporters like Madrona to have a special fundraising effort and create our own Madrona page on each charity’s website.
