MATCHING GIFT COMPANIES
Many companies offer employees a Matching Gift Contribution Plan. Generally, any employee contributions can be matched in part, or in whole, by the company for which he/she works. A contribution to Race to Stop MS may qualify the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to receive a corporate contribution.
How can you “cash in” on this incentive? Contact your Human Resources Department and ask if your donation to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society can be matched. If your contribution is eligible under your company's charitable giving policy, pick up a Matching Gifts Contribution form. Fill out the donor section of the form, and mail it to our office at the address below.
The advantages of using Matching Gifts as part of your pledges are:
1. You can potentially double the amount of money you turn in and qualify for larger incentives.
2. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will be able to fund more research, programs and education with the funds received from matching gifts, aiding us in our mission to create a world free of MS.
Note: If you or one of your sponsors are using matching gifts, please make sure the race participant’s name is somewhere on the form so that we can credit the gift properly. Also, if you are submitting matching gift applications over the web, please mail or include with your pledges a printed copy with the participant’s name.
