You may be able to double or even triple your contribution to the TMA if you work for a company that matches employee gifts. A large number of companies will match your donations to selected charitable organizations with corporate funds, simply by asking you to fill out a form. In many cases, the Transverse Myelitis Association will qualify for these matching funds. Please see your Human Resources department to see if your company has such a matching gift program, and to determine the TMA’s eligibility. Even companies without formal programs will often provide contributions to charitable organizations in which employees are involved.
There are no membership dues for TMA members, and we would like to maintain this policy for the Association. It is our goal to have sufficient funds to perform the work of the Association through voluntary contributions and some form of institutional funding. Contributions will be used to provide membership support, advance education and research programs on rare neuro-immunologic disorders of the central nervous system, which include: Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM), MOG Antibody-Associated Disease (MOG-Ab disease), Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO), Optic Neuritis (ON), and Transverse Myelitis (TM).
