EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFTS
Many companies have matching gift and volunteer incentive programs to maximize their financial contributions to non-profit organizations. This means they will match their employees’ donations to the National MS Society, increasing your fundraising total and bringing us closer to a world free of MS. Search for your employer now by visiting www.nationalMSsociety.org/EmployerMatch.
You can significantly increase your fundraising total by asking your donors to apply for matching gifts!
How it works:
- Send an email to all your donors explaining the benefit of utilizing their company’s matching gifts program.
- Ask your donors to visit www.nationalMSsociety.org/EmployerMatch or contact their company’s HR department to learn about their company’s matching gifts policies and procedures.
- Follow the procedures outlined by your company’s matching gifts program. Printed materials may be mailed to:
National MS Society
Southern California & Nevada Chapter
Attn: Walk MS Matching Gifts
5150 W. Goldleaf Circle, Suite 400
Los Angeles, CA 90056
- Our staff will send confirmation to the donor’s company. Upon receipt of the matching gift check, we will credit your Walk MS fundraising efforts with the amount. This process may take some time, however, if we have received the matching gift paperwork by the fundraising deadline, we will include the pending donation in your Walk MS fundraising total. It's that easy!
