Thanksgiving is almost here which means calendars are full with travel, Black Friday shopping plans and Cyber Monday deals are looming. But we want you to add one more thing to your calendars: #GivingTuesday on 12.1.15.

#GivingTuesday is your opportunity to make a year-end, tax-deductible contribution to the nonprofit(s) of your choice in the spirit of global giving. There are many entities to choose from and we do hope that the Center for Alternative Law & Mediation makes your list.

As we once again participate in this annual event, we are happy to report that over the past year, CALM has done much! We certified yet another group of mediators, acquired offices to hold mediations and consultations, participated in various events in the Antelope Valley community to spread
the word about CALM's services and we're most proud ofthis video completed just last month to help spread the word about how CALM works for clients and partners. 

But with your donation, CALM can do even more! Your contribution will help CALM execute its mission of providing free and affordable mediation services throughout the Antelope Valley -- and beyond. Your gift will help mediators in training earn scholarships to our ongoing trainings. And your participation in #GivingTuesday will help us:

  • offer regular and late office hours to keep our services available on a walk-in basis
  • provide free and low-cost mediation services and consultations to those that qualify
  • host trainings, workshops and social networking events
  • lead mediator certification trainings and award ceremonies
  • expand our Peace through the Arts events
  • handle expenses including software, postage, office space
  • keep our 24-hour phone inquiry hotline open
