Does your employer have a matching gift fund? Many companies offer matching gifts to event participants, a quick way to multiply the effect of donations. If so, be sure to speak with them about matching your gift to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. To find out if your company offers matching gifts, you can also use our Employer Matching Gift Search.
When making an ePledge or general donation online, please be sure to include your company name in the matching gift section. Even if they are not in the registry, entering the company name will help us process the match.
- When submitting matching gift applications on your employer's web site, please be sure to include the Rhode Island Chapter address shown at the bottom of this page.
- When sending a printed matching gift form with your contribution, please complete the donor section of the form, include the name of the person you are sponsoring, and sign the form. Participants may bring matching gift forms with them the day of the event to turn in with pledges.
All gifts made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society are tax deductible. For further questions about the matching gift process when making a donation to the Rhode Island Chapter, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
