Each Society event participant takes on two challenges — the physical challenge of the event itself and the philanthropic challenge of raising money to move us closer to a world free of MS. Raising money can seem intimidating, but once you get started, you’ll be surprised by how easy it is. The easiest way to raise funds is to customize your personal webpage and share it with everyone you know! Get started in your Participant Center now!

Five ways to maximize online fundraising

  1. Make it personal. On your Personal Page and in e-mails, share your story and connection to multiple sclerosis.
  2. Update your content regularly to give donors something new to experience every time they come to your Personal Page.
  3. Having trouble managing your online campaign? Check the detailed help menus or contact us for assistance.
  4. Schedule a few minutes every week to thank donors who’ve contributed to your campaign and remind others that you haven’t heard from them.
  5. Have fun with it. You can keep in touch with your friends and family to keep them involved in the growing movement to end MS.
