               The BIG Day of Giving is an opportunity for the public to donate to nonprofits of their choosing. On May 5th, for over 24 hours, Center for Multicultural Cooperation will join with 500 other nonprofits to raise $5 million, engage 25,000 donors, and make our region #1 as the most generous community in the country on this national day of giving! Our mission is to provide youth leadership and service experience through digital media training and production to develop an informed, skilled and creative workforce.  This year, our goal is to engage 100 donors and raise $15,000, and with your support, we hope to purchase new media and technology equipment and software to update our current inventory. So, If you'd like to participate in this event and help us reach our goal, click on the link below!

Hey all,

Redesign. When you hear a word like this lots of things can come to mind. When redesigning anything you have to start from the basic. When redesigning the CMC website we had to think of everything we had with the old website and see what we can move aside as well, thinking what we wanted people to see first when coming to our website and putting that in the forefront. Stick to the basics and put only what you need, then add everything that you want to put after and see if you even still need it. There's your tip for the day, now impress everyone you know.

So welcome to CMC new website, same place, new look. We're still adding to this, making everything look perfect, but look around see what you like and tell us what you think.
