Gifts That Make An Impact Now
If you would like to make a difference for those facing neurological conditions like MS today, consider the giving options below — many of which have financial and personal benefits to you.
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. Make a gift online today.
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 MS Plus, 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.
In Memory gift or tribute gift
When you give a memorial and tribute gift to MS Plus to honor someone special, you’re expressing your love, admiration, and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute and help those living with MS break down barriers and achieve goals.
Gifts of stocks or shares
You can donate shares of stock directly to MS Plus. Doing so provides a gift of full value with minimal taxes incurred to be paid.
Gifts of property
You can fund your legacy by specifying a gift of property including real estate, art work, jewellery, or other assets such as donating shares (or stocks) directly to the MS organisation. Gifts like these are tax deductible in the same way as gifts of cash and can help minimise tax incurred, to get the best result for the estate. You can also attach conditions to the property gift, such as the provision to live in the property during your lifetime.
Matching gift opportunities
Would you like to maximize the impact of your giving and encourage other supporters to mobilize on behalf MS care and research? Consider sponsoring a matching gift challenge. Donate a pool of funds to MS Plus, from which we will match any donation made within a given period of time. In this way, you can double the impact of your giving.
