THE STORY:

Starting today, November 29th, your generous gifts to the Mutiple System Atrophy Coalition, through this page, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $100,000 until January 5, 2017.

The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition is leading the fight to cure MSA, while providing compassionate support and informative resources to benefit families affected by this serious, progressively disabling, neurodegenerative disease. 

On Giving Tuesday, all donations made via the MSA Coalition’s 2016 Holiday Challenge Crowdrise page and team member pages will go 100% to the MSA Coalition Global Research Grant Fund! Please give generously and help us win the Crowdrise Giving Tuesday $25,000 bonus prize for MSA research! 

The MSA Coalition first began in 1989 when a toll free support line was installed at the home of an experienced MSA caregiver.  Today families around the world can seek support through an extensive global online community.  

NOTE: Your gifts beyond Giving Tuesday and throughout the Holiday Challenge period (Nov 30 – Jan 5) will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100,000) and will be allocated for the ongoing development of our programs in MSA support, education, advocacy and research.  Your dollars will help support:

  1. Our Global Research Grant Program
  2. Our annual conference for patients and families (webcast live around the world) 
  3. Training of volunteers to ensure our dedicated toll free support line continues
  4. Development of improved MSA educational materials for patients and carepartners
  5.  Sponsorship of MSA educational events for health care professionals
  6. Sponsorship of travel grants for young MSA researchers to attend scientific conferences and present their work
  7. Sponsorship of the International Multiple System Atrophy Congress
  8. Staff to increase fundraising capacity which will directly lead to more dollars available for research, education, support and advocacy initiatives
  9. Development of a support and volunteer network to reach all affected by MSA   

Your financial support to the MSA Coalition this Holiday Season will keep alive the hope of finding a cure for Multiple System Atrophy through our Global Research Grant Program and sustain our efforts to support all affected by the disease.

Thanks so much for your generous support!
