Multiple Sclerosis Foundation Will Award Grants Up To $1,000 Per Qualified Individuals

Jul 2, 2002

The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation has made applications available for the 2002 Brighter Tomorrow Grant. Last year, 60 recipients from 23 states and Puerto Rico benefited from the Brighter Tomorrow Grant. The goal of the grant is to provide an individual with MS with goods or services (valued at up to $1,000) that will improve their quality of life by enhancing safety, self-sufficiency, comfort or well-being. These grants, up to $1,000.00 per selected applicant, are for people who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The funds are dedicated for the purchase of items or services that will improve the quality of life for the recipients and help them to have "A Brighter Tomorrow"(TM).

The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation received 335 applications last year. With additional funding available for this program this year the number of applicants could easily double.

To qualify, applicants must have been diagnosed with MS, be at least 18 years of age, and have no other means of fulfilling the need they express. Applicants must provide basic personal and financial information, and must write a brief essay of 100 words or less to describe how the grant would be used to help them have "A Brighter Tomorrow"(TM). Grant applications are available at our web site, for downloading or applying on- line. You may also request an application by calling Multiple Sclerosis Foundation's Program Services at our toll free number, 1-888-MSFOCUS. Applications must be postmarked on or before October 1, 2002 and recipients will be notified after December 1, 2002.
