The Golden Circle was created in 1993 as the Southern California & Nevada Chapter’s elite annual gift campaign. Since that time, individuals, foundations and corporations have contributed millions of dollars to:
accelerate the development of more effective MS treatments
search for the cause and cure of the disease
expand the Chapter’s local programming for people with MS
As a member of Golden Circle, you carry on a tradition from the Society’s founder, Sylvia Lawry, who raised $100,000 in 1946 from friends and family members in her community to try to find an answer to the puzzle of this unpredictable disease.
Golden Circle honors compassionate donors and leaders in the movement to end MS. It is the best way to make a difference in moving us closer to a world free of MS. We hope you will consider giving at one of our giving levels.
