MS Tax Checkoff

On your tax return, make your mark to help create a world free of MS!

This year, people in Louisiana can make a mark to create a world free of MS. While doing your 2013 income taxes, please simply check a box on line 40 of your state tax return form to make a charitable contribution to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. You can choose to donate back a portion of your expected refund, or you can make an additional donation if you owe taxes. Each contribution will go directly toward MS research, programs and services that support thousands of individuals living with MS. A small mark will make a big difference in the movement toward a world free of MS.

Please talk to your tax preparer for more information, or contact the National Multiple Sclerosis Society at 1-800-344-4867, option 1.

Donation Options

A donation to the National MS Society can come in a variety of forms: everything from mailing in a check to donating a car. Listed below are the common forms of donations we accept. For additional information, please contact Taylor Mallia at 1-800-344-4867 (press 2), or taylor.mallia@nmss.org

  • Make a One-Time Gift: When you make an outright gift to the National MS Society, your contribution can be put to work immediately to support the various activities of the organization, including research, services and programs. There are three ways you can make your one-time contribution:
    • Donate Online Today. It’s fast, easy and secure!
    • Mail Your Check. Please make checks payable to the National MS Society and include a note referencing that this is a general donation to the Society. Mail your donation to: National MS Society, 8111 N. Stadium Drive, Suite 100, Houston, TX 77054
    • Make a Donation Over the Phone. You can also make a donation via credit card by calling our office at 1-800-344-4867 (press 2).
  • Make a Multi-Year Pledge: The National MS Society welcomes your gift through a pledge – a formal statement of intention to make a gift. With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time, allowing a larger gift than you original may have considered. For more information, please contact Taylor Mallia toll-free 1-800-344-4867 (press 2), or taylor.mallia@nmss.org   
  • Make a Year-End Gift: You can make a contribution to our annual appeal and support another year of MS movement. Annual appeal gifts are a great way to honor someone during the holidays. To receive information on this special campaign, please e-mail Taylor Mallia at 1-800-344-4867, option 2 or taylor.mallia@nmss.org    
  • Donate Stock: Gifts of stock can be one of the most advantageous ways of giving. Donating appreciated shares of marketable securities can be an attractive alternative to a cash contribution and may provide significant tax advantages to you. For specific information regarding the tax advantages and limitations, please contact your tax advisor. To learn more about donating stock to the National MS Society, please contact Taylor Mallia toll-free 1-800-344-4867 (press 2), or taylor.mallia@nmss.org    
  • Donate Your Car: Car donations can help people living with MS. By donating a vehicle to the National MS Society, you are helping fund vital programs, services and research. It’s quick and easy to donate a vehicle, and your vehicle donation may be eligible for tax deduction purposes. Consult your tax advisor for details.
