Minds Over Matter’s focus groups are:

  • Businesses and Organizations
  • Children, Youth and Families
  • Seniors
  • Cultural Groups

The Fundraising committee is responsible for planning, organizing and executing fundraising events and campaigns whether for Minds Over Matter as a whole, or for its various subcommittees and projects. This committee is also responsible for identifying grants and bursaries that Minds Over Matter is eligible for.

The Partners and Resources committee is responsible for identifying, developing and maintaining the Partner network. Duties include meeting with potential and current Partners, assisting other subcommittees in identifying relevant Partner services, and coordinating joint effort campaigns between Partners and Minds Over Matter.

The Grant Writing committee is responsible for completing grant and bursary applications on behalf of Minds Over Matter.

The Policy committee is responsible for developing and maintaining the role descriptions, codes of conduct, and processes that govern the activities of Minds Over Matter and ensure the integrity of the Society over time.
