We prefer to receive donations by bank-to-bank transfer, which allows us to receive the full value of your generous donation. Please note if you use a credit card to make a donation it may mean you incur additional charges from the card provider.
The Wellington Multiple Sclerosis Society (WMS) relies on the support of generous donors like you, as we only receive around a third of our funding from the Government each year. The rest of our funding is sourced from fundraising, donations and grants from our generous supporters.
A donation to the MS Society makes a huge difference to the life of someone with MS. All donations fund the work of our three wonderful Community Advisors who provide services and support to people with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and whanau.
Every dollar we receive makes a difference! Donations are eligible for a tax deduction so please ask for a receipt if you need one.

Become A Regular Donor
Knowing we can count on a constant, regular source of income helps us budget, and it also makes giving easier for you!
Once you’ve set up an automatic payment or payroll giving, we’ll make sure you receive an annual receipt so that you can claim your tax rebate.
Read on for details on both options.
You can set up an Automatic Payment online via internet banking, or download an Automatic Payment authorisation form to take to your bank. Click HERE to download our Automatic Payment Authority for Regular Giving.
When setting up an automatic payment online please include the following information in the reference fields:
Your Last Name, and the initials ‘AP’ in the reference field.
Payroll Giving allows you to make donations direct from your pay, applying the tax credit immediately. If you would like to donate directly from your pay, there are a few easy steps to follow:
- Check with your employer. This is a voluntary scheme on their part as well as yours and they need to agree. (Note: payroll giving is only an option for employers who file their EMS (IR347) and EDF (IR345) forms electronically.)
- Tell your employer that you’d like to set up a regular donation to the Wellington Multiple Sclerosis Society Inc. Let them know how much and how often and whether you’d like to receive information from us or not. If you don’t give them permission, your donation will be passed on anonymously.
- Your employer will then deduct the donation, calculate and apply the tax credit, complete the IRD requirements and forward your donation to the us.
- As your tax credit is applied immediately, receipts for donations are issued directly to your employer for them to file – you will not receive a tax receipt.
