Brighter Tomorrow Grant

Each year the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation makes dreams come true for individuals with multiple sclerosis across the country through the Brighter Tomorrow grant.

The goal of the grant is to provide individuals with MS with goods or services (valued at up to $1000 per recipient) to improve their quality of life by enhancing safety, self-sufficiency, comfort, or well-being.

Recipients of the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation's Brighter Tomorrow grant have received appliances, televisions, furniture, hobby supplies, retreats, and various home modifications.

To qualify, a person must be 18 years of age or older and diagnosed with MS, or the parent of a minor child diagnosed with MS, and be a permanent U.S. resident. They must not have any other means of fulfilling the need they express.

Applicants are asked to provide basic personal and financial information, and to write a brief essay of 100 words or less to describe how the grant would help them have A Brighter Tomorrow.

If you would like to apply for a Brighter Tomorrow grant, simply fill out our online application, print an application, or call 888-673-6287 to receive an application by mail. Applications are accepted from June 1 to September 1 of each year.
