Ways You Can Help

The MSAV depends on the generous support of people like you to continue its mission.  To participate in one of our fundraising events online or to shop online with a small portion of your purchase going to support the MSAV, click one of the links below:

The MSAV 365 Club is a group of people willing to donate $1 a day, in monthly, quarterly, or annual installments for grassroots support of the MS Alliance of Virginia.  These donations are applied directly to help fund our office space and costs, as well as programming, services, and support of support groups.  If you are interested in joining this, please contact us and we will set you up.

The Multiple Sclerosis Alliance of Virginia now has a Buy, Sell, and Trade group on Facebook called MSAV Community Plus. Our goal is to not only supply a safe place to buy and sell things, but to also create a general ‘Classified Ads’ type of experience – including not only buying and selling, but meet-ups, trades, help wanted, free things, etc. There are so many possibilities, and we hope you will explore them all as the page continues to grow. Another benefit of this page is that we will be able to use it to raise funds for the MSAV. Since we are a 100% volunteer 501c3 nonprofit, we were not eligible for relief funds during the pandemic. Amazon Smiles, Kroger Community Rewards, Birthday Fundraisers on Facebook, and private donations are what carried us through the past two challenging years. Many people have asked us how they can donate things for us to sell, and this page is the perfect opportunity for someone to sell something and donate their profit to us if they so choose, which would go towards things like paying the rent for the office or contributing to fun events for us, etc. We need and appreciate every penny, every minute of your time and every bit of effort anyone makes to help us keep funds coming in.

Other ways to support us are through Kroger Community PlusAmazon SmilesPayPal, eBay, Birthday Fundraisers on Facebook, and Legacy Donations through funeral homes. We are also registered with the Cisco Foundation Matching Gifts Program.
