Matching Gifts

You can increase your fundraising total significantly by having your donors apply for matching gifts!

Many companies have matching employer gifts 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 for eligibility by looking up your employer at http://www.nationalmssociety.org/employermatch.

How it works:

  • Send an email to your donors explaining the benefits of Matching Employer Gifts and let them know they can access an employer lookup here.
  • Follow the procedure outlined by your company’s matching gift program; printed materials may be mailed to: 
    NYC – Southern New York Chapter of theNational MS Society 
    Attn: Climb to the Top 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 employer gifts check, we will credit your Climb to the Top fundraising efforts with the amount. While this process may take several months, if we have received the matching gift paperwork by the fundraising deadline, March 31, 2015, we will include the pending donation in your Climb to the Top fundraising total. Pending matching gifts, however, will not be counted toward your fundraising minimum to participate in the event and get your participant packet

It is that easy to double your impact, moving us closer to a world free of MS!

If you have any questions, please contact us at climbMS@msnyc.org or call 212-463-9791.
