Midwest Witches’ Ball Designated Charities

The Midwest Witches’ Ball works with many charities that fight for causes near and dear too local pagans. Thanks to our many sponsors the Midwest Witches’ Ball is able to support the following charities:

Ancient Oak Scouts
Scouting for Pagan Kids of All Genders, Faiths and Ethnicity
A Pagan Scouting program under the Universal Society of Ancient Ministries. Where children of the Gods and Goddesses can come together and have fun.

Michigan Pagan Scholarship Fund
Scholarships for Michigan Pagans Going to College
We (Universal Society of Ancient Ministries, Magical Education Council, Pagan Pride Detroit, Witches of Michigan and Witches Ball) have joined forces to continue with TSF’s scholarship program. The new scholarship will be called the Michigan Pagan Scholarship. Offers a $500.00 scholarship for a rising high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate. All applicants must live in Michigan. Applicants must be 17 years of age or older, have a current GPA of 2.8 or higher, be Pagan, and currently accepted in a full time course of study in any accredited four-year college or university. Application includes an essay about what being a Pagan means to you. This year the Midwest Witches’ Ball will be having a 50/50 raffle to raise money for the Michigan Pagan Scholarship Fund

Pagans In Need
May You Never Hunger ~ May You Never Thirst
A food bank filled and maintained by Universal Society of Ancient Ministry supporters to meet the needs of those who might be turned away from other sources due to their professed religious orientation. This charity has expanded to address diverse needs such as lack of home appliances, shutoff notices, and eviction notices.

Universal Society of Ancient Ministry
Giving Back to the Community
Universal Society of Ancient Ministry is a Pagan Church directly serving the areas of Southeast Michigan. Regardless of our physical location, we welcome members from all over the world as well as those from different belief systems. All people are welcome to join us on our quest for knowledge, wisdom and learning the path of the Ancient religions. We are a legally recognized Church. We are committed to fostering tolerance in the greater pagan and local community. We provide an open and accepting environment for all members. We exist to nurture spiritual growth through religious services, charitable functions and education by teaching classes in addition to our clerical study program. We hold public as well as private rituals. We are a family-friendly group and encourage children to participate with their parents. Regardless of their beliefs, all are welcome to learn and participate!

Wolf Run Wildlife and Spiritual Sanctuary
Spiritual Center and Wildlife Refuge…
Blessings and hello friends, family and neighbors. Listen closely to the sounds of the wind through the trees and over the fields. Do you hear it? It is the spirit of the Wolf calling you home. Wolves are protectors, teachers or pathfinders and have a strong sense of family. In many cultures, they stood for honor, loyalty strength, and bravery and still do today… These are only a part of the spirit that they left behind. Sadly, wolves have not roamed these lands in many years, but their spirit lives on. With that, we welcome you to the Wolf Run Wildlife and Spiritual Sanctuary, a Multi-denominational Spiritual Center and Wildlife refuge.

The Spiral Circle
Pagans In Recovery
This is a support group aimed at Pagans who may feel uncomfortable in traditional 12 step settings. The goals of this group range from support and healing to educating ourselves about the sickness that we are working to overcome. Keeping with our traditions this group will be open to people of all paths but the focus will be Earth or Goddess based.
