Ways to Give to the National MS Society

The National MS Society, Pacific South Coast Chapter relies upon donations from individuals like you to fund vital research, programs and services to help those living with the disease. Your contributions provide funding for 18,000 people in San Diego, Orange and Imperial Counties living with or affected by multiple sclerosis.

Whether you choose to make an outright gift, donate through a payroll deduction, make an equipment donation, donate in someone’s honor or memory, or donate a vehicle, your donation makes a big difference in the fight against MS.

Throughout the year, we receive countless inquiries from Chapter supporters about the many different ways there are to help the National Multiple Sclerosis Society meets its mission through contributions. See our Guide to Giving.
