Broke Your New Year’s Resolutions Already? Resolve to Support ACB through the MMS Program

Greetings from the Monthly Monetary Support (MMS) program committee! We hope that 2018 finds you happy and healthy, and we hope it’s a prosperous year for all of us.
 
If you attended or streamed the 2017 ACB annual conference and convention, you already know that the MMS committee has been working diligently to maintain our goal of raising more than $100,000 annually. We have made great strides to increase this amount but, to do so, we need your help. 
 
Joining the ACB MMS program shows real commitment and support by you, the membership, and we sincerely thank all of you who joined the MMS program for the first time, and those of you who increased your monthly donations. We hope that more of you will decide to join us, or raise the amount you’re already giving, so that in 2018 we’ll exceed the goal by five percent.
 
As you all know, ACB tries to provide services and support, free of charge, to all blind people and those who are blind with other disabilities, those who are friends or relatives of blind people, employers, and those who are in the process of losing their sight. Our staff and board members work with Congress, the FCC, the Department of the Treasury and countless other government agencies and organizations to make life better for all of us. They also work with blindness organizations around the world when issues present themselves. Your monthly donations help to make this all possible.
 
Your contribution is tax-deductible. Whatever amount you designate, the minimum being $10, will be taken out of your checking account or charged to your credit card each month. You can donate the whole amount to ACB, or half of it to ACB and the other half to an affiliate of your choice. And should it be necessary for you to stop your donations for any reason, you can do so, no questions asked. Finally, everybody who joins the MMS program or increases their monthly donation by at least $5 before the end of the 2018 ACB convention this summer will be eligible to win a fabulous prize.
 
There are two simple ways for you to sign up for the MMS program. First, you can visit ACB’s website, acb.org, tab to the Donate Now button and then tab to the Monthly Monetary Support (MMS) program. Or you can call or email Lori Sarff at the ACB Minneapolis office, (612) 332-3242, lsarff@acb.org. Either way, it’s easy to begin making monthly contributions, or increase current ones.
 
If you’re like most of us, you’ve already broken those resolutions you made on New Year’s Eve. Why not resolve this year to help support ACB financially with a monthly donation? It will be one of the most beneficial resolutions you’ve ever made, and one of the easiest to keep.
