Accelerating research toward

a cure for multiple sclerosis

Give Now

The Accelerated Cure Project relies on contributions to fund our mission to accelerate advances towards a cure for multiple sclerosis. Donor contributions enable us achieve our mission, and we look forward to your continued support.

We accept one-time, annual or recurring monthly cash contributions by check, credit card, or wire transfer, as well as gifts of goods, services or assets. Because we are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your support may also entitle you to a tax deduction. We will also appreciate and make good use of any volunteer time you wish to provide, and would encourage you to learn more about our volunteer opportunities and events by clicking here.

You can make a donation in the following ways:

No matter how you choose to donate, you will be playing an integral role in the race to find a cure for MS, and we greatly appreciate your support.

Leveraging corporate giving programs

You may be able to increase the size of your gift if your employer is one of the many companies that have "Matching Gift Programs" for charitable contributions made by their employees. This means that for every dollar an employee gives to an approved charitable organization, their employer will contribute some additional amount.

Please ask your human resources department whether your company offers a program like this. If so, let us know and we'll help you fill out the necessary paperwork to multiply your contribution by taking advantage of this generous benefit.

Even if your employer does not match employees’ gifts, other corporations have gift programs that can be activated by anyone. For example, how many times a day do you search the Internet? How about in a week? A month? A year? Did you know that every time you search the Web, Accelerated Cure Project could earn money? iGive.com and GoodSearch.com are search engines that donate a portion of their revenue to charities designated by their users. Go to igive.com or goodsearch.com to download the toolbar and select Accelerated Cure Project as the charity you want to support. Likewise Amazon will donate .5% of the value of purchases you make on Amazonsmile.com to ACP.

Have you been inspired by Marie Kondo to simplify, organize and de-clutter your home? Consider selling those no-longer-wanted items on eBay and donating a portion (or all) of the proceeds to ACP through their Giving Works Program.

While we are not listed with the United Way, you can use our United Way Restricted Contribution Code of M337457 to direct funds to us through the United Way giving program.

Plan to Give in the Future

By designating ACP as a recipient of a bequest, you can make a significant gift that will:

  • Make a Big Impact- Bequests allow many individuals to make larger gifts than they could during their lifetimes. This is particularly appealing to donors who want their gift to “amount to something,” but haven’t had the means to make a substantial donation before.
  • Cost you Nothing Now- A bequest costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you have provided for ACP in the future. You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime and you may modify your bequest if your circumstances change.
  • Enhance the Value of Your Estate- Bequests enable savvy donors to avoid federal and state estate taxes. As with other financial decisions, it is important to consult legal counsel to maximize the benefits of your estate planning.  An outright gift from your estate is entirely free from federal estate taxes. This means that ACP is able to use the full amount of the bequest, whereas if it were left to an individual, a significant amount might go to federal estate taxes.  Also, bequests generally are not subject to state inheritance or estate taxes.
  • Determine the Legacy You Leave Behind- Bequests allow you to decide what your legacy will be and the kind of impact you have on the future. You can earmark your bequest for specific purposes, e.g., for iConquerMS or for the ACP Biorepository, or simply for use where most needed. But whatever you choose, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will live on, providing these services and improving the lives of people with MS for years to come.
