Why We Give
The Society’s nationwide network of chapters is the lifeblood of MS research, providing major support for research programs. No less than half of all the unrestricted income that the chapters share with the national office goes to MS research. Approximately 83% of Society income is devoted to research and service programs that enhance the lives of people with MS and their families, while 17% is invested in support services such as fund-raising and Society management. It costs the Society approximately 15 cents to raise a dollar. At least sixty cents of every dollar stays in the chapter for local program use.
