Donor-Advised Funds

Because of the unprecedented pandemic and economic crisis, now is the time to make a gift from your donor-advised fund (DAF). Please contact our Development team, at (800) 532-7667 ext. 172 or to make a disbursement today. DAF support is a key source of revenue for MSAA during this challenging time, and will make an immediate difference for people struggling with MS.

Typically, DAF gifts support one or more of the following initiatives:

  • Safety equipment, including wheelchairs, grab bars, cooling vests, walkers, and other resources that allow people with MS to continue working, traveling in their communities, and living safely in their own homes.
  • Educational resources for individuals navigating this disease, including our website, toll-free Helpline, and nationwide virtual events.
  • Financial help for individuals who require an MRI to diagnose or evaluate their MS but either have no medical insurance or cannot afford their insurance costs.

Setting Up Your Own Donor-Advised Fund

DAF gifts reduce your tax burden and make a life-changing difference for individuals struggling with MS by allowing you to make charitable gifts in an investment account that grows tax free. Then, you can direct your financial institution or fund manager to give whatever portion of that money you choose to your preferred nonprofit organization(s).

In return, you will receive immediate and maximum tax deductions allowed by the IRS.
