Donate to the Mary Jane DeLauder Memorial Fund

Dick DeLauder, MJ’s husband and care partner, is honored to have this memorial fund established in Mary Jane’s name. His wish for this fund is that it reflects MJ’s passion for education and patient involvement in the inclusion body myositis (IBM) community, and he will match donations made during annual fundraising for this award.

Gift-matching will be available again at the start of 2020. Dick will match funds up to $1,000.00 made on this page.

Donations made using the form below will be used for the Mary Jane DeLauder Memorial Fund.

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.

We rely on your support to make sure we can make the most impact for those affected by myositis. Your ongoing, recurring donation ensures we have continual funding to move forward.

Employer Gift Match

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Some even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Contact your Human Resources team to learn more.

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to charitable organizations directly from their IRA, without that donation being counted as taxable income when it is withdrawn.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.
