The MS Leaders Circle is composed of upwardly mobile business professionals in the Greater Delaware Valley who want to make a difference in their community by undertaking a fundraising campaign to benefit local people living with multiple sclerosis. Honorees will also have the option to join a community service project where they will personally make a difference in the MS community.

A typical MS Leaders Circle honoree has already made substantial contributions to civic, business and cultural endeavors in the region — but wants to do more to give back. Honorees are either nominated by a peer or nominate themselves.

Since its inception, MS Leaders Circle has raised more than $2 million to fund research for a cure and address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. This program helps the more than 15,000 local people living with the disease connect to the people, programs and resources they need to live their best lives. Participants who meet our fundraising goals are honored at an awards ceremony with former 76ers President, Pat Croce.

Honoree responsibilities:

  • Raise a minimum of $1,500 through a special gifts campaign with guidance and support from Society staff
  • Set and publish a fundraising goal
  • Provide a biographical sketch including photo (can be taken at Awards Ceremony)
  • Attend the awards reception
  • Nominate individuals for future MS Leaders Circles
  • Participate in group community service project (optional)
