Town Hall Meetings

The MAGIC Foundation has been hosting virtual town hall meetings.  The purpose of the meetings are to continue to educate and support our families on various endocrine topics.  Since it is a live format it also gives families an opportunity to ask questions.  The meetings are always free to attend!

The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.

These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world.

Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal. MAGIC's CFC #10388.
