$10 M Fundraising Initiative

|Mothers Matter Centre (MMC) is seeking to elevate our organization’s national profile and provide leadership and guidance to enable active and interested communities in Canada to deliver the HIPPY program and other MMC program innovations.

MMC is committed to growing and sustaining our flagship Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program, which uses an innovative mother-to-mother approach that is supported by 50 years of research in delivering results for social change. We intend to take HIPPY’s proven, innovative model and apply it to program innovations in other areas of social support pertaining to housing assistance, job-skills training, literacy and language training, healthcare, and more. MMC collaborates with Canadian organizations to launch HIPPY and other program sites and support them with their implementation by providing a robust performance management process, systematic professional development training to site Coordinators, and research and innovation. MMC has the ultimate responsibility to monitor these sites to ensure program fidelity and efficacious change results. MMC will work with partners across the nation to innovate programs based on our mother-to-mother approach.

MMC and HIPPY sites across the country have historically relied largely on government sources of funding and to a lesser extent private sector donations. To expand our reach, we need to grow our funding and diversify our inputs. Mobilizing private and corporate support is critical to our mission. Our five-year, $10 million Campaign will do both by seeking 50% of its funding from government, and 50% from private and corporate support. 10% of the proceeds from this Campaign will go to support current active sites across Canada.  View full campaign funds breakdown here. 

Our Campaign

Our Campaign will help socially isolated and disadvantaged newcomer, Aboriginal, and low-income families gain a foothold in Canadian society through providing training and curriculum to mothers to educate their preschool-aged children, and by supporting mothers as they integrate into their communities. The funds from the success of our Campaign will allow us to expand our Aboriginal HIPPY programs and our Multicultural HIPPY programs to more locations across Canada. This will enable us to accommodate for the increased inflow of refugees and provide support to more Aboriginal communities across the country. The funds will also allow us to expand our program offerings to cover a variety of important subjects to support families in Canadian society, and provide employment and educational opportunities through more developed scholarship opportunities and professional training.

The Campaign funds will be distributed across five platforms, with corporate distribution of funds subject to donors’ community giving and corporate social responsibility interests (as applicable). These include:
