How to Donate

Though we fundraise for just about all of the events that the National MS Society sponsors (Walk MS, Bike MS, MS Achievers and Challenge Walk), the Capital Challenge Walk is a major focus in that participants have a fundraising minimum that’s required in order to take part in the event. When people ask us what’s the best way to help us make a difference, we always say to help donate to those needing to meet their minimums for challenge walk.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to our fundraising goals, donating online is the best way to go. Our walkers and super crew each have to raise $1500 a piece, and have set up individual pages where you can donate online.

Other Ways to Donate

Fundraising Events
Each year we hold a series of dinners, sales and concerts to support the team.  Simply attending one of these events or making a purchase means a portion of your purchase will be donated to the National MS Society.  Visit our calendar for a list of upcoming events.

CafePress Purchases
You can get your own customized MS is BS gear from our online store.  The clothes make great gifts, and are a must-have for wearing at our events. Have your friends and fam buy as much as they can, as all of the proceeds go to the National MS Society for our team’s fundraising efforts.

Corporate Sponsorship
If you have a business that would like to partner with the team for an event, or if you would like to sponsor a walker (or the entire team) with a donation, contact us and let us know.  We’re an active community that’s looking for new ways to spread awareness on a wider level, and we couldn’t have gotten as far as we have thus far without the help of our corporate sponsors.

Where the Money Goes

In addition to spreading our story and increasing awareness of the effects of multiple sclerosis, MS is BS makes it a focus to raise funds to support research and resources for those suffering from MS. 100% of proceeds raised by the MS is BS team are donated to the National MS Society, who then uses 78 cents of every dollar to pay for programs, education, advocacy, and research.
