In a recent interview for the Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum podcast, Alan Alda, the famous actor and science advocate, said the following, which may as well be MSDF’s manifesto:
"It seems to be a really really serious problem that scientists need to collaborate more and more between disciplines, and the problem is they often … don’t understand one another much better than a layperson understands a scientist in a specialized field. … And we’re going to have to bridge that gap if we’re going to get the benefits of collaboration."
Helping scientists understand each other across the gaps between scientific disciplines is MSDF’s guiding principle and our reason for existence. We’re firmly convinced that bridging those gaps—through independent information and compelling journalism about the many subdisciplines studying MS—will help spark new ideas and catalyze unforeseen connections.
If you believe this endeavor is as important as we do, we hope you will consider contributing.

Many companies have "Matching Gift Programs" for charitable contributions made by their employees. This means that for every dollar an employee gives to an approved charitable organization, their employer will contribute some additional amount.
Please ask your human resources department whether your company offers a program like this. If so, let us know and we'll help you fill out the necessary paperwork to multiply your contribution by taking advantage of this generous benefit.
