Support the mission to create a world free of MS by including a gift to the National MS Society as part of your estate and financial planning.

There are many options to choose from, and we offer resources and information to help inform your decisions.

Planned Giving through bequests (will)

A charitable bequest to the National MS Society can be a flexible and easy way to participate in supporting the MS movement. Bequests come in all sizes. For example, you may prefer that a bequest be for a specific amount or represent a percentage of your estate. Or, you could create a bequest that helps the MS Society after you have provided for your family and friends, called a residual bequest. All bequests are important to us regardless of size, and are gratefully received. To make a bequest commitment, simply ask your attorney to revise your current will to include one of the following:

A bequest of a specific amount
I hereby give and bequeath to the Greater Northwest Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society the amount of $______ to be used for its general purposes.

A bequest of a percentage of your estate
I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to the Greater Northwest Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society ______% of my estate to be used for its general purposes.

A bequest of whatever remains after all other bequests have been made
I hereby give, devise and bequeath to the Greater Northwest Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society my residuary estate (or ______% of my residuary estate) to be used for its general purposes.

Other Opportunities

In addition to bequests, there are a variety of other opportunities that can help you make a bigger contribution than you may have thought possible, receive some favorable tax benefits now, and possibly even provide a lifetime income for you or your family. Some favorite options include:

Charitable Gift Annuity
With a gift today to the National MS Society, you can receive a tax deduction now, and also regular income payments for the rest of your life.

Retirement Plan Gifts
Naming the National MS Society as a beneficiary, give a gift of an existing policy, or purchase a new policy and the annual premium payments can be deductible.

Charitable Trusts
There are a wide variety of tax-wise trust arrangements that can incorporate generous gifts to charity and offer tax savings.
