Your Contributions Make the Difference

Together we are the MS movement. We are a movement by and for the people with MS. Every connection counts to improve the quality of life for the thousands of people whose lives are impacted by multiple sclerosis. With your gift we can move towards a world free of MS.

Every dollar that you give will make a difference in the lives of people in Northern California living with MS. Every dollar funds innovative programs and services and groundbreaking research focused on stopping the progression of MS, restoring function that's been lost and ending MS forever.
