Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Automotive Safety, Crime & Law, Disaster Aid, Drunk Driving-Related, Human Services, Victims Services

Mission: The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking.

Results: When MADD was founded in 1980, an estimated 25,000 people were killed in drunk driving crashes each year. Since then, we've been able to cut that deadly toll by more than half, save more than 350,000 lives and serve nearly one million victims. But there is still more work to do to get to No More Victims. MADD has passed all offender ignition interlock laws in 30 states and DC, serves a victim free of charge every 3 minutes and educates a parent or teen every 4 minutes

Target demographics: victims of drunk and drugged driving, general public education, teen/youth education

Geographic areas served: Nationwide and in local communities

Programs: Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, Victim Services, Power of Parents, Power of Youth, Victim Impact Panels, Law Enforcement Recognition Events, Walk Like MADD, Tie One On for Safety

30 years ago my wife was killed by a drunk driver (male)
Since I was a single father led household, MADD lived up to its name.
It was full of MAD women who felt MEN were the evil ones...
This summer my lead carpenter's wife was killed by a drunk driver (female).
Again history repeats. I email MADD on 3 june, get no reply till 11 August when some
there states they tried to e-mail me on the 28 of July.

I give them a list of problems, request for literture, local contacts, etc.. all ignored..


Seems these folks can't use phones. I think they've done good work, but their time has passed....

Give your money directly to those affected locally and let these folks use their big bugs at the state houses....

I found myself in the madd office in July of 2012 after my partner of 20 years was hit by a drunk driver while using a cross-walk at a busy intersection. As you can imagine, I was and continue to be, absolutely devastated and if it weren't for the support, guidance and friendship from the madd staff, I don't know that I would be here today. The madd staff helped me through everything from emotional support which gave me the strength to make funeral arrangements, to support and guidance through the legal process and the emotional torture that goes with this. Thank you madd for all that you are doing for me and for all the help that you are giving to other victims across the country.
