Ways to Get Involved
Find out the different ways you can be involved with MIALS!
Neighbours helping Neighbours:
The success of MIALS is based on our many volunteers who are literally neighbours helping neighbours. With limited resources available for older residents, it takes various kinds of support from members of our community to help residents age in place on the island they love. You can get involved with MIALS as much or as little as you like. Become an active volunteer or simply make a donation. All forms of support are greatly appreciated and make a difference in the lives of MIALS clients. Here are some of the ways you can get involved.
Join the MIALS Volunteer Team:
MIALS is made possible because of our strong volunteer team. There are many opportunities to become involved with our services and programs. The amount of time you volunteer is flexible – helping with a weekly program or just occasionally when needed or at a special event such as a fundraiser. Please join us. You’ll have fun, meet people and make a difference!
Become a MIALS Member:
The voice of the community plays an integral role in our capacity to serve Mayne Island. MIALS annual membership is just per person or per family. Membership gives you a vote at the AGM. You will also receive our email newsletters and your membership fee will support our many programs.
Support MIALS with a Donation:
MIALS is grateful to receive donations from individuals and island organizations. These funds are needed in tandem with government grants so we can continue to provide programs and services to Mayne Island residents. There are many easy ways you can donate. Tax receipts are issued for donations of $20 or more.
Attend MIALS Fundraising Events:
Join Mayne residents and visitors alike at our fun filled fundraisers including the House & Garden Tour, Mayne’s Got Talent and Musicians on Mayne at The 44. Watch our news page and MIALS social media for upcoming events.
