WORKPLACE GIVING - A Great Way to Support MS
Workplace Giving Programs provide an easy way for you to contribute to the research, programs and services that help those who are affected by multiple sclerosis. Made through a one-time donation or smaller periodic payroll deductions, these tax-deductible gifts are especially important because they are not restricted in any way and can be used to support the areas of greatest need.
Your employer may have its own corporate giving program, or it may work through one of three organizations that help facilitate workplace giving:
All three make it easy to support the Wisconsin Chapter of the National MS Society.
When your employee giving campaign begins, please remember to specifically designate the National MS Society-Wisconsin Chapter as the beneficiary.
Your company may have an individual corporate gift program or participate through the Community Health Charities or United Way.
Community Health Charities of Wisconsin is the largest workplace giving program devoted solely to health issues. It represents 75 health charities in the state of Wisconsin that meet high accountability standards. Click here to learn more.
United Way operates local workplace giving programs throughout Wisconsin. Its donor choice option allows payroll deductions to be directed to the Wisconsin Chapter. (You may need to fill out a separate donor designation form identifying National Multiple Sclerosis Society-Wisconsin Chapter as your organization of choice.) Click here to find your local United Way.
Federal employees can support the Movement toward a world free of MS through the Combined Federal Campaign of Greater Wisconsin, which gives public sector and government employees the option of giving to organizations of their choice. Click here to pledge. Use code 36427 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society-Wisconsin Chapter.
Many employers recognize the value of their employees' donations to the National MS Society and offer matching gift programs to further increase the value of those gifts. (Some will even double or triple the amount of donations!) Click here to learn more and find out if your employer participates.
All gifts made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society-Wisconsin Chapter through workplace giving are tax deductible. For additional information, please call (262) 369-4400 or (800) 242-3358.
