Mission Statement

The mission of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is to end the devastating effects of MS.


Founded in 1946, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society supports more MS research, offers more services for people with MS, provides more professional education programs, and furthers more MS advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world.

We do this through the extensive research we support to find the cause, cure and improved treatments of the disease; the comprehensive services we provide to people with MS and their families; the professional education programs we offer to assist health care providers better serve their MS patients; and through our advocacy efforts on state and federal levels to encourage public policies supportive of the needs of people with multiple sclerosis. This is why we at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society are here.

Volunteers are vital to the work of the National MS Society. We welcome volunteers with a wide range of talents and skills. There is only one requirement: to want to do something about MS NOW. Your valuable skills and fresh perspectives will make the Society a stronger and better organization. There are so many ways to contribute, whether through advocacy, programs, fund-raising or special projects. We can always use your help.

Nick is very kind to people and passionate about the MS Society community. Guidances, Lemonade, pizzas, and a cool Volunteer T-shirt are provided during the volunteering. The volunteers were helpful and they are great teammates. I had a great experience and learned a lot.

I volunteered on and off at the NMSS Sacramento office for about 2 months. The Sacramento office does an excellent job of encouraging event participants in the region. The work they do with and for patients shows their passion for a world free of MS. I highly recommend volunteering at NMSS for the great experience and the phenomenal staff.

Enjoyed this event so much that I volunteered the next day for MS Walk 2016 Walnut Creek.

It was a fabulous, well organized event. The people involved were enthusiastic and the absolute joy on the bikers' faces when they crossed the finish line was more than enough to make me come back again this year.
