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.

We are delighted to invite you to become a member of the Golden Circle and hope you’ll consider a leadership donation to fund a world free of MS. Join the Golden Circle as a member today!
