What We Fund

As a small not-for-profit, MS Hope for a Cure is committed to ensuring the dollars we raise are spent in the most productive and helpful manner. Currently there are two areas where we feel we can have the greatest impact. These are the only two areas for which we will accept new grant applications.

1. Research Request (National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) approved projects only)

MS Hope for a Cure recognizes that the National MS Society has the greatest knowledge base and resources to evaluate specific research projects and determine where funds will be best spent most effectively. Therefore all of our funds raised for research will be donated via the MS Society as they will be able to leverage our funds with other contributions and make progress more quickly than MS Hope for a Cure could do on its own. In addition, MS Hope for a Cure will fund research that has already been vetted and approved by the NMSS.

2. Personnel support for local NY MS Centers Request

MS Hope for a Cure believes that until a cure is found it is imperative that we do whatever we can to help those individual living with MS and their families. Local MS Centers offer comprehensive care and are dedicated to serving individuals with MS, however they have limited resources. MS Hope for a Cure is interested in supporting MS Center personnel to ensure there is sufficient care for those most in need. Personnel funded by MS Hope for a Cure must demonstrate an ability to reach a currently underserved constituency within the MS population.
