Help With Fundraising
For our organization to continue to grow and be successful, we need your support. Please consider hosting a special event such as a walk, a run or golf outing in your area. They can be fun and it's not as much work as you might think. Proceeds from our fundraising events go toward improving our programs, making our conferences more affordable for our families and supporting research.
eScrip - A easy, hassle free way to help us. Register your credit cards with this service and eScrip will donate a certain percentage of sales from select merchants to PRISMS.
United Way - Many companies have a fall campaign drive for the United Way. Consider designating PRISMS as the recipient of your generous gift.
iGive - This is another easy, hassle free way to support us. iGive is a free online shopping mall that links to thousands of merchants. These merchants will donate up to 26% to PRISMS for each purchase made as long as you've entered the merchant's site via iGive.
Now, it's easier than ever to show your support for PRISMS. eScrip is a hassle-free way to raise money for PRISMS through your everyday purchases made at eScrip merchants. It's easy...it's free...and it's powerful!! There are no receipts to collect, no voucher or certificates to buy, no hassles for you - and every purchase counts! And unlike similar programs, you don't have to make your purchases through a specific website. Simply register your various cards - grocery club cards, credit cards and ATM/debit cards with eScrip and watch your everyday purchases add up! For every purchase made, PRISMS receives a portion of the sale price. eScrip's rebate percentages vary by merchant but most are in the 2-10% range.

As you may know, the United Way begins its annual fundraising drive each fall in nearly every community in the United States, Canada and many other countries. It provides a way for many charities to obtain funds by individuals contributing a portion of their paycheck through payroll deduction. Each United Way chapter lists a variety of organizations that may be chosen for payroll deductions, most of which are locally based. Many of the United Way's 1,400 chapters or member organizations also allow individuals to write in the charity of their choice. The 501(c)(3) non-profit status of PRISMS should qualify us for the write-in option (assuming the local chapter accepts write-ins). Here's all of the information you'll probably need: PRISMS, Inc., 21800 Town Center Plaza, Suite #266A-633, Sterling, VA 20164, Tax ID 54-1652029.
To obtain a write-in campaign in your workplace, contact your company's United Way chairperson or your local United Way agency to ask if there is a write-in or designation option. Most co-workers are eager to donate to a cause that is personally tied to a colleague. Posting a public letter or a poster asking your fellow employees to join you in our fight against SMS might be one way to reach all the employees and increase our funding.
