Other Vendors:



Funding the Cure: Helping a Loved One with MS through Charitable Giving to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is an elegant, noteworthy book that instructs the reader on using charitable giving strategies for loved ones with multiple sclerosis.

While the concept is simple and the focus is narrow, the book will be of great interest to those with multiple sclerosis, their friends, family and loved ones.

Funding the Cure tells the reader how he/she can specifically tailor charitable giving to not only accomplish tax and charitable goals, but to also achieve vital personal and human goals like protecting a grandchild living with multiple sclerosis, or leaving property to fund MS research. The book is written in easy to understand language and offers practical examples of charitable giving geared to the NMSS not generic tax jargon."

Written clearly and simply, it offers straightforward explanations of an array of strategies and tax advantages in language that anyone--not just attorneys and CPAs--can grasp and appreciate. Funding the Cure is a valuable primer offering a broad overview of estate-planning techniques applicable to charitable goals."-- Momentum
