Memorial Gifts

Memorial Gifts is a meaningful way to honor a family member or friend who lost their battle with meningitis.   By honoring family or friends with a donation to MFA, you will know that their memory can be shared by many.

Give At Work

Matching gift programs are a great way to get your employer involved with the work of MFA. Many employers will match your personal donation dollar for dollar, double or triple a donation’s value, allowing you to increase your donation to MFA.  Check with your company for more information on matching gift programs. Employer matching gifts may also be available to you if you are the spouse of an employee, a retired employee or the spouse/widow/widower of a retiree.  If you have questions about your company’s matching gift program, please contact your Human Resources office.

Planned Giving

You can support MFA  in a variety of ways, including through your estate. Your contributions it will support MFA in continuing its mission of ending meningitis. Your support  makes it possible for us to fund critical initiatives in fostering educational, advocacy, immunization and research for the early diagnosis and eventual eradication of meningitis. When you plan a gift to MFA in your long-term estate or financial plans, you will help ensure we will be here to carry out our mission for many years to come.

There are many charitable planned giving options available to you. For example, you can make a planned gift to MFA by naming MFA as a beneficiary of your last will and testament, life insurance policy or retirement plan. You can also name MFA  as a beneficiary of a charitable trust. Your attorney or financial advisor can advise you of the various types of charitable trusts and assist you in establishing a trust that is tailored to your personal needs.  Some planned giving strategies may have a greater tax benefit  than others. Please consult with your attorney or financial advisor on which strategy would work best for you.
