Supporting MSAA's Mission...

through making donations, volunteering, and fundraising

< Back | Table Of Contents

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. Anyone wishing to help may do so in many ways.

(1) Making donations: MSAA exists and continues to expand to serve people with MS thanks to generous support through donations. Donations may be made through:

  • Individual contributions (a check or credit card payment directly to MSAA; contributions may also be made through MSAA's website at support.mymsaa.org/donate)
  • Planned giving (such as bequests and charitable gift annuities)
  • Corporate giving (individual contributions along with matching gifts from one's employer; or grants given by a company - sometimes for a particular project)
  • Other donations (such as used cars or used cell phones)

(2) Volunteering: The needs of the MS community are constantly evolving. Anyone interested in supporting MSAA's programs and services through volunteering may contact MSAA (via phone or website) to learn more about local volunteer opportunities.

(3) Fundraising: MSAA and its regions conduct various fundraising activities. Volunteers are vital to the success of these events. Individuals and local groups are also encouraged to hold fundraisers of their own. Examples include bake sales, golf outings, and restaurant events, just to name a few. Swim for MS 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 www.mymsaa.org to inquire about making donations, volunteering, and fundraising.

Dive into action with MSAA's exciting fundraising initiative: Swim for MS!

Whether someone belongs to a swim team or club, swims for recreation or exercise, or simply enjoys the backyard pool, just about anyone can take part in Swim for MS - Any Pool, Any Time!

Individuals may create their own Swim for MS fundraising event and MSAA will help guide them through the process. Funds are generated by establishing goals (such as laps, dives, or even cannonballs!) and asking others to support their swimming or diving efforts with a pledge or direct donation. Some of these fundraisers are held in honor of a family member or friend with MS.

Swimming also serves as a beneficial therapy for people with MS, helping to improve strength, balance, and flexibility. As a result, several MSAA clients have taken on their own Swim for MS challenge while raising funds to support MSAA.

Please contact MSAA at (800) 532-7667, extension 157 or visit www.mymsaa.org/swimforms for more information, to register, and to check-out current Swim for MS events, photos, and personal success stories.
