We have provided a pledge request sample letter for your fundraising use.  Replace the highlighted text with your specific details and tailor to suit your needs.  Contact us to submit suggested enhancements / alternatives.

Dear Sponsor,


On August 6th and 7th I will be participating with hundreds of other cyclists in my eighth Oregon MS150 Bike Tour, a two-day 150-mile ride supporting efforts to fight, treat, and cure multiple sclerosis.  My interest in supporting the multiple sclerosis cause began after my sister/brother/friend was diagnosed with MS.


I will be participating in the MS150 with about 50 other members of "Team Wanta Eliminate MS" (named after one of our team captains' brothers, Dan Wanta, who has MS) in addition to the approximately 600 other participants.  In the five years since inception, Team Wanta has collectively raised $172,000 for multiple sclerosis.


I have pledged $X to this worthy cause.  By joining me in pledging, you will help to fund research projects and programs for people living with MS.  My goal is to raise $Y in total pledges.  Any amount that you can pledge would be greatly appreciated. 


To pledge is easy - simply reply via email indicating the amount you wish to pledge and then either:

(a) pledge online - via credit card at (click "Pledge" in left navigation bar).

(b) pledge by phone - by calling the NMSS Oregon Chapter office at (503) 223-9511 or (800) FIGHTMS.


(c) pledge by mail - by sending a check written to "NMSS Oregon Chapter / MS150" to NMSS Oregon Chapter, 1650 NW Naito Parkway, Suite 190, Portland, OR 97209.

Whichever method you choose, please be sure to specify Team Wanta and and my name and complete you pledge by DATE.


Your pledge may be tax deductible.  Also, please contact me if you are interested in pledging appreciated stock (more bang for the buck - you avoid capital gains taxes and the NMSS gets Uncle Sam's portion). 


For information about or to join Team Wanta, visit our team web site at  For information about the MS150 Bike Tour or multiple sclerosis, visit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society - Oregon Chapter website at  


Many thanks for your consideration and your support if you decide to give to this worthy cause. 






P.S. To avoid annoying you with numerous email messages, this will be the only plea I send.  Please let me know if you would like me to remove your name from this distribution list.
