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 on those affected with Myositis. Your ongoing, recurring donation ensures we have funds available to continue moving forward. You can use your credit card or PayPal account to set up recurring donations.
Employer Gift Match
With matching gifts, you may be able to double your gift contribution to MSU!
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs 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. If your company currently does not match gifts made to MSU, please contact us. We would love to be included in your company’s matching gift program and will work to try to ensure that happens.
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to charitable organizations directly from their IRA, without that donation being counted as taxable income when it is withdrawn.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. Additionally, you may not receive goods or services in exchange for the donation, and you must retain a receipt from us.
To fully reach those affected by Myositis, as well as offer support, Myositis Support and Understanding needs to be able to grow and expand our programs. Since our inception, we have succeeded in keeping overhead to a bare minimum so donations can directly improve the lives of those living with Myositis. This will continue to be the way we organize and maintain our organization’s structure.
MSU is a 501 (c)3 non-profit tax-exempt organization. Our federal ID # is 47-4570748.
As we take pride in being transparent, we would like you to know a bit more about our funding and distribution of funds. Each member of the Board of Directors volunteers his or her time. Besides individual charitable donations we receive, MSU will also seek grants and educational funding from various corporate sponsors.
We appreciate each and every donation we receive. No matter how big or small, each dollar ensures that those living with Myositis receive validation and proper medical care. All donations are tax-deductible.
