Today is giving Tuesday, a global day of giving held to raise awareness for charitable causes and amplify donor’s generosity.
While many organizations are asking for your donations today, we ask you consider the Massachusetts Coastal Coalition as your nonprofit of choice to donate to. Not only is the MCC a 501c3 charitable organization, our efforts have a direct effect on helping to mitigate flood hazards and flood costs.
In 2019 alone, the MCC was able to:
-Increase Marshfield, MA Community Rating System (CRS) class to 7, giving everyone in the high risk flood zone a 15% discount on their NFIP flood insurance policy (effective October 2020).
-Host the North Shore CRS Symposium which gave awareness to communities that attended the need for more CRS involvement.
-Started the Know Flood Membership Program that allowed us to give membership to you, which has given our members access to better information.
-Offer the Know Flood Suit of services, which has lead to low cost elevation certificates, zone determinations, and our new Know Flood Insurance Service Center to answer all your flood questions.
In 2020, our mission is expanding to spread the success of CRS in Marshfield to other communities, grow our membership, add services and implement our grant program. Help us grow in 2020, and donate to us today for Giving Tuesday.
