Gifts in-kind and Pro Bono services
Although MS Research Australia is proud to say that 83 cents in every dollar received goes to research, in kind support of either goods or services will assist in reducing the overhead costs further and will allow more funds to be allocated to the research where it is most needed.
For example your organisation could provide in-kind support by donating products that can be used for fundraising, materials for office use or pro bono services like graphic design and legal advice.
Throughout the year MS Research Australia organises several boardroom lunches where senior MS researchers and scientists discuss their current MS projects with leaders of the Business Community.
Organisations who have hosted the lunches have provided a boardroom inclusive of catering as well as inviting key staff & associates who have been engaged is MS research discussions and actively participated in fundraising initiatives.
Organisations who have generously hosted these discussions include Macquarie Group Foundation, Deloitte, Ashurst, Caliburn Partnerships, Bain and Co, Deacons, Russell Reynolds, Wilson HTM and the Australian Industry Group.
If you are interested in knowing more about these events, or would like to be a host, please contact the MS Research Australia Development and Events Manager by email or phone 1300 356 467.
By making regular tax deductible donations through payroll, employees are providing an ongoing source of funds that make a real difference to the lives of people with MS. Some companies provide additional financial support by matching their employee's donations.
If your employer hasn't got a workplace giving scheme in place, we encourage you to contact either of these specialists online platforms: Charities Aid Foundation Australia (CAF) , Australian Charities Fund (ACF) and Good Company who specialise in supporting employers to implement a workplace giving scheme.
