Fundraising is critical to the National MPS Society. Our fundraising is done by volunteers who are members, friends, and supporters of the Society. The monies received from fundraising enable the Society to fulfill our mission of providing support to families affected by MPS and ML, supporting medical research that will one day find cures, and increasing public awareness of the diseases.
We have been providing assistance to families for more than 49 years and will continue to do so for many years to come. Our ability to hold conferences, provide resource information, help families connect with other families, and offer grants for research is made possible by generous contributions from individuals, sponsors, and organizations.
