The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is a nonprofit, voluntary health organization whose mission is to end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis. Through its national office in New York and its 50-state network of chapters, the society funds more multiple sclerosis (MS) research and provides more programs for people with MS and their families than any other voluntary health organization in the world.

The Society advances public policy development at the federal, state and local levels and advocates on behalf of the third of a million Americans with MS and their families. The nation's most comprehensive resource on MS-related topics, the Society is the only national MS voluntary health organization to meet the standards of all the agencies that rate nonprofit groups. The Society has 2,700 volunteer leaders and a national membership of 600,000.

This organization has completed the National Health Council’s Standards of Excellence Certification Program and meets the highest standards of accountability, ethical practice, organizational effectiveness, and good public stewardship.
