Workplace Giving Programs provide an easy way for you to make your contributions to help support the fight against multiple sclerosis. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society partners with Community Health Charities in both the public and private sector. You will find our listing under the Community Health Charities Federation. If you don’t find us, ask your employer to add our name. If you have any additional questions about your contribution, please contact our chapter office.
Matching gifts are a great way to maximize your support!
You can often increase the value of your contribution to the National MS Society through a corporate matching gifts program. Many corporations and businesses will match employee gifts to a qualifying nonprofit organization, with differing guidelines in each company (be sure to find out what they are at your employer).
Each company has a different process. To find out whether your company has a matching gifts program, contact your personnel office or corporate contributions officer. Your company representative can provide you with a matching gifts form, which must be completed and then sent to the Northern California Chapter for processing. You can also look up if you company has a matching gifts policy on this website.
Private Sector Giving
Your company may have an individual corporate gift program or participate through the Community Health Charities Federation. The Northern California Chapter is an active participant in the Community Health Charities campaign. You'll see us listed in their fundraising materials and may designate all, or part, of your contribution to the Chapter.
Although we are not a member of the United Way, you may ask if you can designate your gift to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society through the Donor Designation Program. Simply ask your United Way contact at work for a Donor Designation Form and write in the Northern California Chapter of the National MS Society as your charity of choice.
If you have questions about workplace giving, contact Don Hall, Director of Donor Relations, at 1-800-344-4867, option 2.
