Founded in 1946, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is a non-profit, voluntary health organization guided by a single mission:
We mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.
The National MS Society addresses the challenges of each person affected by MS. To fulfill this mission, the Society funds cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education, collaborates with MS organizations around the world, and provides programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move forward with their lives. In 2011 alone, through its national office and 50-state network of chapters, the Society devoted $164 million to programs and services that assisted more than one million people. To move us closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $40 million to support more than 325 new and ongoing research projects around the world. The Society is dedicated to achieving a world free of MS. MS affects more than 2.1 million people worldwide.
