MSAC Core Values
Our organization is composed of people who are committed to alternative dispute resolution. We believe in dignity and respect for all people involved in a dispute. We believe that effective mediation can transform relationships, truly enabling life changes.
Our services are available to all regardless of socio-economic class, ethnicity or other considerations. While ability to pay is a secondary consideration, we believe that some investment by every participant is vital to a successful mediation. We will not knowingly put people at risk, either as participants or as mediators.
**Multiply your gift at the ACCF Giving Spree**
November 9th is the date for this year’s Adams County Community Foundation Giving Spree at the Gettysburg Area Middle School, 4:00–6:30 p.m. This event gathers Adams County’s many nonprofit organizations together in one room for you to visit each one and talk with representatives about their goals.
The Spree is the ideal opportunity for year-end giving. When you give to Mediation Services through the Spree, 100% of your gift comes to MSAC—and your gift will qualify for Spree matching funds, increasing your impact.
This year’s Spree offers a different approach. When you arrive, you’ll receive a token worth $10 to deposit that night with the nonprofit of your choice. We hope you’ll visit our table at the Spree and consider making a gift to Mediation Services of Adams County.
If you can’t get to the Spree this year, you can still make a gift that’s eligible for Spree matching funds. Just mail MSAC your check, made out to Adams County Community Foundation, and dated Nov. 9, 2017, any time before the Spree. Your donation will be deposited at the Spree, and the Foundation will credit us with 100% of your gift, plus our share of Spree matching funds.
