In a world where many non-profit organizations appeal for corporate sponsorships, deciding who will receive your charitable contributions can be difficult. As a corporate sponsor for the MSF, your support will ultimately help make “A Brighter Tomorrow”® for people who have MS, an often debilitating autoimmune disease.
It is estimated that at least half a million people in the United States have MS, though recent studies suggest that number may be much higher. Through the years, the MSF has earned a reputation as a trusted and reliable resource of information, support and financial aid for much of the MS community. In becoming a corporate sponsor of the MSF, you will be recognized as another respected ally in the mission to improve the quality of life for people with MS.
In the sections below, you can learn more about the MSF as well as ways you can contribute as a corporate sponsor.
About the MSF:
Our resources assist people who have MS, their families and caregivers, regional support groups, and healthcare professionals. Access to our programs and services is available through our interactive web site or our national, toll-free helpline staffed by caring caseworkers and peer counselors. Our priority is to serve with empathy, resourcefulness and responsibility.
All MSF services, as well as information, literature and subscriptions to our publications are provided free of charge. The MSF neither sells memberships nor requires participation in fund-raising activities by individuals or support groups.
The MSF is a service-based, non-profit organization. With national headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the MSF serves the nation from one central location. By eliminating the need for branch offices, we are able to maintain a more cost-effective and efficient operation while maintaining the highest quality service. Networking with independent, grassroots organizations gives us a local presence in communities around the nation.
Established in 1986, the MSF is a publicly funded 501(c)3 organization. The MSF follows established accounting procedures and is audited annually by an independent CPA firm. Financial information such as an annual IRS form 990, audited financial statements, and the 501(c)3 determination letter are accessible on the Financials (link) page. Funds raised by the MSF go directly into services designed to improve the quality of life for people with MS.
