Make a donation

Will you consider making a monthly recurring gift? We are only limited by funding in what we can provide in programs and research. Select “Monthly” after you enter the amount.

Be sure to ask your employer if they match donations! You will be surprised by how many do. Additional ways to donate are included towards the bottom of this page, and even more are available on our Giving page.

In Honor and In Memory
Honor or memorialize someone in your life with Myositis. Make a tribute to remember a fellow Myositis champion. Those you honor will receive a letter from MSU letting them know!

Become a Recurring Donor

Your ongoing gift will change lives.

MSU advocates on behalf of those living with Myositis while empowering the Myositis community to become proactive. We rely on your support to make sure we can make the most impact for those affected with Myositis. Your ongoing, recurring donation ensures we have continual funding to move forward.

Employer Gift Match

With matching gifts, you may be able to double your gift contribution to MSU!

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please contact the Human Resources team at your company.

IRA charitable rollover

Offers tax benefits for those who qualify

The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals who are 70 1/2 years old to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their IRA, without that donation being counted as taxable income when it is withdrawn. To qualify, contributions must come from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA, and they must be made directly to a qualified charitable organization like MSU.
