Forty Years of Impact.

As Can Do MS moves towards its 40th anniversary in 2024, our goal is to galvanize 40 community leaders to include Can Do MS in their estate plans to fund scholarships. It’s vitally important that our health and wellness education, coaching, and medical expertise are delivered entirely free of charge to every family so that relief from the struggle of MS is significant, tangible, and immediate.

Retirement Plan or IRA

Naming Can Do MS as the beneficiary of your IRA, 401K, or another qualified retirement plan is a flexible way to support families with MS and can help your heirs avoid income and estate taxes.

Life Insurance

Making a beneficiary designation through your life insurance is an easy way to support Can Do MS and create an incredible legacy. You can designate Can Do MS to receive all or a percentage of your individual or group term life insurance policy proceeds.

Stocks + Assets

You can give more by avoiding capital gains taxes! By donating stock that has been appreciated for more than a year, you give more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation.

Cash & Bank Accounts

One of the easiest and most common ways to support Can Do MS is with a gift of cash. There are several ways to make cash donations, including as an outright gift, a gift in your will, or through charitable annuities and trusts.
