Join the #GivingTuesday Movement and Fight MSA on December 1, 2020

A force for giving since it began, #GivingTuesday means more when you give to the MSA Coalition. This year, #GivingTuesday lands on December 1, 2020. More than a day of giving, it’s a day to get involved. If you are affected by Multiple System Atrophy in any way, the MSA Coalition is the perfect nonprofit to support this holiday season.

Our research and conferences advance our mission. In fact, MSA Coalition recently awarded five new research grants as of September 1, 2020. We have now surpassed $2 million in total MSA research funding. We are leading the charge against MSA and have been doing it the longest. And so have you. Offering hope for a cure starts with your fundraising and donations. As a rare disease community we need everybody to pitch in.

Thank you.

Tax-Deductible Giving For This Holiday Season

The Holiday Spirit is alive and well at the MSA Coalition as we get ready for Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday and the Christmas season. Year-End Giving is also in full-swing now, so if you are looking for a way to save on your taxes, your money will be put to good use. We are an all-volunteer nonprofit with an incredibly high passthrough rate for every donation no matter what size.

Facebook is a super easy and friendly way to fundraise by engaging people already in your circle of friends. It takes a couple minutes to set up. Then, all you have to do is invite every person in your network and post your fundraiser. You’ll be surprised at the support and donations you get.

GoFundMe (formerly Crowdrise) has been a trusted fundraising partner site for the MSA Coalition since 2014. It is a great place to tell your story or to memorialize a loved one. It has easy to use fundraising tools to let you add your photos and video and then share your customized web link.

About the MSA Coalition

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder that can cause a multitude of symptoms in any combination including impairments to balance, difficulty with movement, poor coordination, bladder dysfunction, sleep disturbances and poor blood pressure control.

The disease was first known as Shy-Drager Syndrome. Currently, it is believed that MSA is “sporadic,” meaning that there are no established genetic or environmental factors that cause the disease. A few reports have described families with MSA, but this finding is probably very rare. Our blog page is a great resource for you to get up to speed on the latest achievements in the fight.
