Frequently Asked Questions
Is MS Crop for a Cause a registered non-profit?
Yes. Our 501(c)3 number is 45-3444324. All money raised is donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. For every $1 donated to the NMSS, 55 cents is used for research efforts, as there is currently no cure for Multiple Sclerosis. Additionally, 34 cents is used for programs and education and 11 cents is used for fundraising and management.
I’m not sure I can go! Can you save me a spot?
Seats are not reserved until registration form and payment have been received.
Do I have to register, or can I just show up at the event?
Yes, you must register. Advance registration and payment are required prior to attending an event.
I registered but can’t attend. Can I get a refund?
Due to this being a fundraiser we do not offer refunds. However, you may transfer your ticket to a friend. Please contact us with the name and email of the person taking your seat so we can add them to the list.
Can I pay with a Credit Card?
Yes. ALL registration for our events MUST be done online with a credit card. We offer Credit Card, Check or Cash as payment options for things you purchase at our events.
I have a special dietary need (vegetarian, gluten-free, etc.). Do you take special requests to accommodate these needs?
We provide food at our 1-day events only. The food is donated, so we cannot make any changes. You may bring in your own food.
Can I get a discounted price, if I can’t attend the whole day or weekend?
No. Please keep in mind that the registration fee is a donation.
Does the facility have WIFI?
Do I have to stay at the hotel for the weekend fundraisers?
No. There is no requirement that you spend the night at the hotel. If you do stay at the hotel, we ask you to use our room block code. If there are any issues with the hotel the only way, we can take care of any changes is if you use our room block code.
May I bring a small table to use at my craft table?
Yes, extra tables are allowed as long as they do not block the aisles or intrude on anyone else’s space. For safety reasons, if any tables or your supplies block the aisles you will be asked to remove the hazard.
What drinks are served?
For our weekend events water is provided. For our 1-day events we have water and soft drinks for $1. We ask you to bring a non-clear covered cup.
Are there snacks available?
At our 1-day events there is a community snack table. For our weekend events in exchange for waiving the usual food fee we have agreed to not bring any outside food into the crop room. There are many areas in the lobby to enjoy a snack.
I’m a vendor. May I sell my products at the crop?
No. However, you can donate a raffle basket and become one of our sponsors.
