Support Us

Only a third of Wellington MS's costs each year are covered by government funding, which we receive via agencies like Te Whatu Ora and Whaikaha.

We work to raise the remainder by making applications to Trusts and Funds and through fundraising. We also receive generous bequests and donations to support our work. You can find out more about making a donation or bequest by clicking this link.

There are many ways that you can help to support the vital work that Wellington MS does. Together we make a huge difference to the life of someone with MS.

All the support we receive goes towards supporting our three great Community Advisors who provide services and support to people with Multiple Sclerosis and their families in the Wellington region, or towards specific projects or initiatives.

Every dollar we receive makes a difference! Donations are eligible for a tax deduction, so please ask for a receipt if you require one.

Fundraise for Wellington MS

Do you have a great idea to raise funds for Wellington MS?

We would love to support your efforts and the proceeds will go towards providing services throughout the greater Wellington. If you want to earmark the funds for a particular project or area that's fine too.

We can support your effort by providing bibs, buckets, banners and promoting the fundraiser in our newsletter.

Some of recent fundraisers have included Cosplay, a bake sale and a movie night.

Get in touch, we are very grateful to all the people and groups who raise funds on our behalf.
