Set a fundraising goal
Help us reach our Walk MS Goal by setting a personal fundraising goal! While there is no minimum pledge, we ask each walker to raise at least $25. You can set your goal to earn a prize, take the $500 Challenge or join the 2012 Gold Laces! Every dollar moves us closer to being fully funded and allows us to support life changing research and provide valuable programs and services to those with MS.

Increase the value of your contribution to the Mid America Chapter through matching gifts. Many corporations and businesses match employee gifts to qualifying nonprofit organizations, with differing guidelines in each company. Your employer knows its policy regarding matching gifts and is waiting for you to ask.
To find out if your company has a matching gifts program, contact your personnel office or corporate contributions officer. Companies have various methods by which you can submit your matching gift request: online forms, automated phone systems or a paper you must submit to the Chapter when you turn in donations.
Your company not listed? Talk to someone in your human resource department. If your company does do matching gifts, let us know and we will add them to the list! For more information about Matching Gifts, please contact Bonnie Jameson at Bonnie.Jameson@nmss.org. or call 913-432-3926.
