Greetings from the Monthly Monetary Support (MMS) Committee. It’s 2019, a new year. New years often mean new beginnings; we begin a new diet, a new exercise program, or maybe we begin contributing to ACB through its Monthly Monetary Support Program.
By now, most of you are familiar with the MMS Program. Every month, the amount of money you designate (a minimum of $10) is either charged to your credit card or withdrawn from your checking account as a tax-deductible donation in support of ACB. One hundred percent of your contribution may be given to ACB, or you can request that up to 50 percent of what you donate go to an affiliate of your choice. If you’d like to contribute to more than one affiliate, you can do that also. Sign up as many times as you like. Each time you do, up to half of your money will go to ACB and the other half will go to the affiliate you choose. If you’re already contributing through MMS, we sincerely thank you for what you have given so far. And even if you yourself are not a member of ACB, you can still join the program. We very much appreciate your support.
There are two simple ways for you to get started. You can visit ACB’s website, acb.org, tab to the Donate Now button, and then tab to the MMS program. Or you can call the ACB office in Minneapolis at (612) 332-3242 and they’ll sign you up. Either way, it’s easy to begin making monthly contributions, or to increase current ones.
As always, if you join the MMS Program or raise your donation by at least $5 per month any time from now through the end of our national convention in July, you’ll be eligible to win one of two great prizes, an Amazon Echo or a Toshiba 43-inch integrated TV. So why not join the ever-growing number of members and friends who contribute to ACB through the MMS Program? We hope we’ll hear from you soon. See you at our booth in Rochester, N.Y. this summer!
