MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
Loving greetings to each one of you,
We are nearing the end of the year, and as I look back, what I am experiencing is a group of dedicated volunteers extending their talents and love for Meher Baba, and shaping them into activities to move Meher Archive Collective forward. And I am deeply appreciative to all of you who have taken an interest in MAC and its development!
One of the most fascinating things for me is to witness MAC's worldwide reach, which includes inquiries and donations from India, Dubai, Europe, and from various parts of the United States. This seems to be the time in Baba's advent when His messages of love and spirituality need to go farther than ever. This requires cooperation across the globe between various centers and groups. It is MAC's mission to "collect, preserve, and share" items related to Meher Baba, and we look forward to working with other centers and groups in service to Him. We hope you will help us with this most important task.
In His Embrace,

End-of-Year Matching Campaign goal is $10,000. Act now to maximize your donation!
As we are in the holiday season of giving and celebration, we want to express our gratitude to all the MAC donors, contributors and supporters, and to those volunteers who give their time and efforts to making MAC successful. Many thanks to all of you!
We are happy to report a successful conclusion to MAC’s Springtide fundraising campaign at the end of September 2023. The final tally of donations was nearly $39,000, which was then matched by one of MAC’s generous patrons, totaling approximately $78,000! These monies provide support for MAC’s archiving operations, which help pay for the needed tools, supplies, utilities, shipping, and IT software and hardware. We cannot do this without your support!
MAC will be closing out 2023 with an End-of-Year fundraising campaign, with a goal of $10,000. Happily, we again have matching funds of each dollar donated, up to $10,000, and are hopeful many of you can find a way to donate to MAC before year-end! Let’s take advantage of our matching donor opportunity!
I invite you to enjoy the short video in the link below, which will introduce you to the new archival spaces at the MAC building. It is exciting to imagine the work that will be accomplished here in preserving the legacy of the Avatar. You can help us do that.
We wish happiness, well-being, and fulfillment in the coming year to all in our community!
With love and thanks to all in Baba,
John Dalisky, Fundraising Chair
