Give at the Office
October 24, 2013
Every year, people nationwide help create a world free of multiple sclerosis by contributing through their employer's charitable giving campaign.
Most campaigns kick off in the fall, so if you've been looking for any easy and efficient way to join the movement, act now. Simply designate your annual pledge to the National MS Society. Your donation will be automatically deducted from each paycheck to fund cutting-edge research and provide programs and services to help people affected by MS move their lives forward.
Federal government employees and military personnel are eligible to participate in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the nation's largest workplace giving program. If you participate in the CFC, designate your gift to the Society using CFC #82666.
If your company offers a workplace giving program, look for the Society listed under Community Health Charities. If your employer doesn't offer a giving program, talk to your benefits administrator or call us at 1-800-344-4867, option #2, to see if we can help.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
