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 non-profits, increasing your fundraising total and bringing us closer to a world free of MS.
Check to see if your company has a matching gift program: www.nationalmssociety.org/employermatch.
How it works:
- Send an email to all your donors explaining the benefit of utilizing their company’s matching gift program.
- Ask your donors to contact their company’s HR department to learn about their company’s matching gift policies and procedures.
- Follow the procedure outlined by your company’s matching gift program; printed materials may be mailed to:
National MS Society, NYC - Southern NY Chapter
Attn: Bike MS Matching Gifts
733 Third Ave., Third Floor
New York, NY 10017
- Our staff will send confirmation to the donor’s company. Upon receipt of the matching gift check, we will credit your Bike MS fundraising efforts with the amount. While this process may take up to several months, if we have received the matching gift paperwork by the fundraising deadline, we will include the pending donation in your Bike MS fundraising total.
It is that easy to increase your fundraising total, moving us closer to a world free of MS.
