NATIONAL CAMPAIGNS FOR YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
National campaigns create collective impact that is greater than the sum of their parts. We offer fundraising, awareness and community engagement campaigns, and the toolkits, support and often financial rewards to make them work in your community.
ADVOCACY SUPPORT & RESOURCES
It takes a unified voice to maximize our legislative impact. So, while we’re on Capitol Hill, we’re also sending you frequent updates, information and the facts, figures and campaign support to make our collective voice louder and our results greater.
The new Meals on Wheels national marketing and branding materials are designed to help everyone in the Meals on Wheels network communicate who we are, what we do and why our movement matters so much to all of us.
EDUCATION & TRAINING
The Meals on Wheels Leadership Academy provides training and learning in a full range of disciplines needed to grow your program’s effectiveness and efficiency. Everything from our Annual Conference to webinars and the field’s only certification program are available to Members at discounted prices.
