One Small Mark Can Make a Big Difference

Donate to the Society on your income tax form.

Improve the quality of life and ensure continued independence for Wisconsinites diagnosed with MS. 

By making a donation to multiple sclerosis on your Wisconsin income tax form, you’ll help individuals struggling with the financial impact of the disease, which is estimated at $70,000 per person annually. 

Donations provide:

  • Installation of bathroom grab bars, wheelchair ramps, wheelchair lifts and other home modifications that aid in client independence
  • Widening home doorways to make them wheelchair accessible
  • Accessible vehicle modifications to support greater freedom
  • Exercise therapy to maintain strength and mobility, and improve balance/stability
  • Orthotic equipment to improve walking ability
  • Adaptive computer software to allow clients to work at home
  • Air conditioner units to reduce the impact of the summer heat

What can you do?

  1. Designate a donation for multiple sclerosis on your 2013 Wisconsin state income tax form.
  2. Ask EVERYONE you know to do the same, even if it’s $5 or $10.
  3. Download and post this flier to raise awareness of this funding need.
Every dollar donated for multiple sclerosis through a Wisconsin state income tax form stays in Wisconsin.

MS May Be Cut From List of Causes

Last year, 2013 Wisconsin Act 20 changed the state’s tax check-off program so that any cause or organization that doesn’t generate at least $75,000 in income tax form donations will be permanently removed from the program beginning in 2015. This legislative change threatens the ability of the National MS Society to provide vital financial assistance to those in Wisconsin struggling with the economic and physiological impacts of multiple sclerosis. Donations from you and people you know are needed to keep this funding resource alive.
