Representing the MS Society
Whenever you take part in fundraising on behalf of, or in aid of, the MS Society, you represent our goals, values and standards.
Our fundraising standards
Your fundraising must meet our fundraising standards and the legal requirements of the fundraising sector.
Claiming Gift Aid, understanding VAT and corporate sponsorship, and dealing with earmarked and restricted funds are important financial matters when fundraising.
Your fundraising plan
By putting together a fundraising plan, you'll get a clear idea of what you're raising funds for, how much you need to raise, and which methods to use.
Recruiting a fundraising team
At the MS Society, we deliver impact through our volunteers. Our amazing fundraising team includes everyone from volunteers who coordinate the fundraising activities of their group, to those who cheer at fundraising events.
Supporting our national work
You may be fundraising to support the delivery of wider local and national services and MS Society objectives, or you may plan to contribute your group's excess funds.
