Accelerating research toward

a cure for multiple sclerosis

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers make a huge difference in ACP’s success, and hundreds of hours are donated each year to support our work. Take a look and see if any of these activities may be of interest to you, and feel free to contact Lindsey Santiago at 781-487-0013 or lsantiago@acceleratedcure.org directly for more information.

ACP can always use an extra set of hands around the office to help with large mailings, event preparation, our scientific programs, and other administrative tasks. Please contact us to learn more.

Do you have an idea for your own event? Hosting a fundraising event is a great way to reach out to your community, raise funds to support ACP, and have a blast while doing it. Here are some event ideas you might want to consider:

  • Art shows
  • Concerts
  • Dances
  • Dinners
  • Golf tournaments
  • Private dinner parties
  • Theater performance
  • Your own creative idea

A letter writing campaign is a quick and easy way for you to fundraise on behalf of ACP. We provide you with a letter template and mailing list spreadsheet. All you need to do is personalize the letter and fill in the spreadsheet with your family, friends and supporters. We take care of preparing the mailing and all postage costs! This is a great way to allow your network the opportunity to support an organization you are involved in.

If you are a high school or college student who has worked to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis, you may be eligible to apply for a scholarship from the Mary J. Szczepanski "Never Give Up" MS Scholarship Foundation. Since 1997, this non-profit organization has been providing scholarships to students who have used their creativity and determination to raise funds for MS. The Foundation has partnered with ACP in its efforts to raise funds and awareness to find a cure for this deadly disease. For information on their national program, please visit their website MS Scholarship or contact Rick Szczepanski, director at 616-791-2069.
