To achieve our goals, we need to continually fundraise. The more money we raise, the more people we can help and the faster our progress will be to beat MS.

Planning to fundraise is vital. We always focus on our shared goals first, then we think about how we are going to achieve them and finally, how we will raise the money we need.

As an MS Society fundraiser, you may be involved in fundraising to cover the costs of your group, or to support the delivery of wider local and national services and MS Society objectives.

We've put together a range of resources to help you plan and deliver an effective programme of fundraising activities.
