Golden Circle


Golden Circle Golden Circle members are fueling progress by annually giving $1,000 or more to the National MS Society. The Golden Circle is comprised of a nation-wide community of leaders who share a passion for a world free of MS. A leading benefit of Golden Circle membership is the opportunity to connect with these remarkable individuals nationally and in your local area. Golden Circle members are also connected to updates and information about the advances in research and care that are most meaningful to them.

Golden Circle members are making an exceptional impact in the MS movement. Together, we are acting with urgency to find solutions and change the world for people affected by MS:

  • Each person can live their best life with more connections to information, resources and others with shared experiences. Each person affected by MS, including their families and loved ones, can connect 24/7 to the most comprehensive and reliable information and resources available, whether online, in-person or via telephone.
  • We fund more MS research that any other MS organization in the world.
  • There are more therapies specifically approved for treating and managing MS, and there are more potential MS therapies in development today, than at any other time in history.
  • The voices of people affected by MS are heard and drive change wherever it is needed. More than 75,000 activists across the country have united to secure millions of dollars in government research funding over the last decade.

The Golden Circle program recognizes the Michigan Chapter’s top annual donors, who give $1,000 or more directly or through an event.  Golden Circle members’ generosity ensures that each person with MS can live their best life with more connections to information, resources, and others with shared experiences.  A portion of each Golden Circle contribution also helps accelerate research breakthroughs that can change lives and end MS forever.

The Golden Circle program strives to enhance members’ connection to the mission of the National MS Society.  Throughout the year, members receive special opportunities and communications:

  • Receptions and Speakers – Golden Circle members receive invitations to exclusive receptions with chapter staff members and mission speakers occurring in your area.  The Michigan Chapter also host a private reception for Golden Circle members each fall in the Detroit area.  In 2014, Dr. Timothy Coetzee, Chief Research Officer for the National MS Society, spoke about our research initiatives and new wellness strategy.
  • Chapter & Research Newsletters – The Michigan Chapter MSConnection newsletter and NOW Quarterly updates are emailed to Golden Circle members quarterly, and the MSConnection is mailed directly to members’ homes semi-annually.
  • Annual Meeting – Every Golden Circle member receives two complimentary tickets to the annual meeting held at the beginning of March each year.
  • Dedicated Chapter Staff Member – Tim Krause, Donor Relations Manager, is dedicated to answering Golden Circle members’ questions and keeping members informed of chapter events
