Ways to Make an Impact Now

Ways to make an impact now

You can make an immediate difference to empower people living with multiple sclerosis to meet the challenges of this disease and share the dream. And you have several kinds of gifts to choose from. Each of these gifts is an effective way to help people with multiple sclerosis to live a life uncompromised.

Gifts of cash: Perhaps the most effective gift is a gift of cash. With such a gift, you benefit from a charitable tax deduction while you provide much-needed services and support for people living with multiple sclerosis.

Gifts of property: You can fund your legacy gift by giving gifts of property, including real estate, art work, jewellery, or other assets. Gifts like these are tax deductible in the same way as gifts of cash. You can also attach conditions to the gift, such as the provision to live in the property during your lifetime.

Gifts of stock shares: You can donate shares of stock directly to the MS organisation. Doing so provides a gift of full value with no taxes to be paid.

Private ancillary funds: An easy way to give funds you have set aside for charitable causes is to transfer funds from your private ancillary fund. A private ancillary fund is a charitable trust that allows you to create your own personalised giving program. It is a private fund through which you make tax-deductible donations to support Multiple Sclerosis Limited, rather than making one-off donations. The donations you make are invested, managed, and distributed to support people with multiple sclerosis for years to come.
