Supporting MSAA’s Mission of Improving Lives Today…
MSAA’s programs and services are vital, helping to fulfill the many needs of individuals affected by MS. As a nonprofit organization, MSAA depends on the generosity of others for funding to continue to improve lives today for people affected by MS. Individuals may give to MSAA in many ways.
- Individual contributions – via MSAA’s website at
support.mymsaa.org/donate, or through a check or credit card payment directly to MSAA. Make an even bigger impact by joining our monthly giving program – only $10 per month provides a shower chair, bathtub-safety rail, and grab bar for one individual with MS.
- Planned Giving – planned gifts benefit donors by allowing them to support MSAA beyond their lifetime and by offering tax advantages, income, and personal satisfaction. Planned-gift options include bequests, life insurance, and charitable-gift annuities.
- Corporate Giving – workplace giving is an easy and efficient way for employees to make tax-deductible donations to charities through their employer payroll. To double the impact, employers can provide matching gifts for employee contributions that directly meet their corporate social-responsibility goals.
- Other Donations – examples include honor and memorial donations, used vehicles, and even donations to MSAA in place of conventional wedding favors.
Volunteer Fundraising – individuals and groups are encouraged to create their own fundraisers such as bake sales, golf outings, bowling tournaments, or your own unique idea. Swim for MS, MSAA’s signature fundraising initiative, is an exciting way to raise money. Please see the next page for more information.
Help in any way is vitally needed and deeply appreciated. Please contact MSAA at (800) 532-7667 or through mymsaa.org to inquire about supporting MSAA.
Dive into Action for the MS Community!
Swim for MS is a national fundraiser making waves all across the country! People of all ages and skill levels are raising awareness about MS while recruiting online donations to help the MS community. Funds are generated by establishing goals and asking others to support their efforts with a pledge or direct donation.
Volunteers create their own Swim for MS fundraising event such as swimming laps or setting a specific distance as a goal… individually or as part of a team… at home or at a swim facility… in honor of a family member or friend with MS… it’s entirely up to you! Past Swim for MS challenges range from cannonball-jumping contests to college swim-team competitions, to synchronized swims, and to birthday parties. This is why we say, “Any Pool, Any Time!”
Getting started is as easy as 1-2-3!
MSAA will guide you through the process to set up a personal web page to collect donations and to tell others about your Swim for MS fundraiser. You can even promote your challenge on Facebook and Twitter using #SwimForMS to gain awareness and additional support.
