Fundraising for us is a great way to take an active role in improving the lives of people living with the MS. However much money you raise, however you raise it, we can – and will – put it to good use. With your help, we can look forward to seeing the back of MS.

Jen's marathon journey

Our amazing long-time supporter, Jen, recently ran the Paris Half Marathon in memory of her late father, Stephen, and to raise funds for MS research. Watch her heartfelt video message, and learn more about her journey in our blog about her journey.

Coming up with an idea

Our supporters have done some incredible things to raise funds for us: climbing mountains, running marathons and jumping out of planes. This could be just the motivation you need to do something you've always wanted to do!

Thankfully, there are also lots of less challenging ways to fundraise for us. Simple things like doing a sponsored silence, or asking for donations on your birthday can be really effective as well.

With effective promotion, your fundraiser is much more likely to be succesful.

There are lots of ways to promote a fundraiser. Sharing on social media is great if you have enough followers. But if not, why email your friends and family? Depending on what you're doing, it could also be worth trying old-style promotion techniques, like putting up posters in your local shops or alerting the local press!

Handling funds

One of the sinplest ways to gather donations is via our JustGiving page. Once you've signed up, it's just a few quick steps to set up an online donation page for MS Research where people can sponsor your event. 

Of course, we're happy to receive funds in any form. See how to donate for details of other methods of transferring funds to us.

Following our guidelines

Before you start planning your fundraising, please check our fundraising guidelines. These are very straightforward, but should help make sure your fundraising is safe and legal.

Can we help?

If you do decide to raise funds for us, we will help you in any way we can! 

We can provide you with branded t-shirts, vests and collection buckets. If you want to create your own branded materials, download our logo here and let us know if you want more information about the MS Research brand.

If you have an idea for an event but are unsure of where to start, then please let us know and we'll hopefully be able to point you in the right direction!


When you sign up to Gift Aid and you're a UK taxpayer, we can claim the tax back on your donation.  This means you can boost your donation by 25p for every £1 you give!

Find out more about Gift Aid on the UK Government website.
