Dear Sir or Madam:

Thank you for your contribution of $1,000. For federal income tax purposes, this letter will serve to confirm that no goods or services were provided you for this donation. Please retain this letter for federal income tax purposes.

On behalf of all those we service, our sincere appreciation for your generous support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. With the help of friends like you, MDA continues to be able to provide comprehensive services through local MDA clinics and advance its research efforts to find treatments and cures for 40 neuromuscular diseases.

Due to your continued support, individuals and families affected by muscle disease have received diagnosis follow-up care, flu shots, drug and equipment prescriptions, consultations on physicals, occupational and respiratory therapy, assistance with the purchase and repair of wheelchairs, summer camp, support groups and educational programs in Long Island.

You will be pleased to note that among large national voluntary health organizations, MDA has been recognized as:

One of the top ten charities in U.S. News and World Report's "Guide to Giving"
Number one on cost efficiency in the Chronicle of Philanthropy's annual "Philanthropy 400"   report
Tops in financial efficiency in "Charities You Can Believe In", Kiplinger's Personal Finance   magazine
First for percentage of total income from public support in The Non Profit Times November   review of America's 100 biggest nonprofits

Again, we are truly grateful for your commitment to our cause. I look forward to us working together in the near future.

For your donation, you will not only receive a taxable deduction for the value of your gift, but the gratifying feeling of knowing that your assistance is helping families that are affected by neuromuscular disease in Long Island and the boroughs.
