End-of-Year Giving

November 2, 2015

There are many ways to contribute to the MS movement and ways to give a gift to help end MS. As 2015 comes to a close, consider participating in your workplace giving campaign, Giving Tuesday or, if you live in Alaska, Pick.Click.Give.

WORKPLACE GIVING
Every year, people nationwide support the mission of the National MS Society by contributing through their employer’s charitable giving campaign. Most campaigns kick off in the fall, so if you’ve been looking for an 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.

Community Health Charities
Many national and local corporations offer their employees an opportunity to make a charitable donation through payroll deductions. The Greater Northwest Chapter partners with Community Health Charities of Washington (CHCWA) to link generous employees with the opportunity to support people living with MS through workplace giving programs. If you don't see our name on your form, ask your employer to add us!

If your employer offers an independent campaign, ask your program administrator how to designate your gift to the National MS Society.

National MS Society, Greater Northwest Chapter CFC Code: 95694 and EIN: 91-0742424.

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)
Federal government employees and members of the U.S. Military Forces can support the Society through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) by designating their contribution to the Greater Northwest Chapter CFC# 11409.

United Way
In a few areas, individuals may support the Society through the United Way. If your employer offers a United Way program, ask your administrator how you can designate your gift to the National MS Society.

EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFTS
If your employer has a matching gift fund, ask them to match your workplace giving, or other gifts, to the National MS Society. See if your company offers a matching gift program.

GIVING TUESDAY
#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. “Like” us on Facebook and keep an eye out for posts about Giving Tuesday.

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.
