An MS research foundation is completely non-profit and collects funds to aid in finding a cure for MS. Any MS research center can be found online, if you wish to donate time or money to its cause. The goal of most foundations is to raise as much money as possible to go towards researching MS to find a cure. Generally, all donated funds go towards research; 100 percent. The workers at the foundation are all volunteers, in order to enable donations to be put completely towards MS research. A number of foundations are set up for a person who struggled with Multiple Sclerosis and lost the battle. There are some centers created by the loved ones of a person with MS in hopes a cure will be found soon.

As for events, some funds are necessary for getting things rolling, but the foundation usually receives most of what it needs to host an event for free. Thanks to the kind hearts of those involved with making special events happen, 90 to 95 percent of the funds raised through the event are still able to go towards new MS research. Most costs are created by the need to pay for caterers, performers, or venues and even these are sometimes provided at a discounted rate, due to the noble cause they are being used for.
