Trusts and Foundations
As the MPS Society continues to improve and expand its services in response to members’ needs, grant-making bodies are playing an increasingly important role in providing the funds to make this happen and giving us an increasingly important source of income.
We make carefully-targeted applications to suitable trusts and foundations for specific areas of our work including our support service, literature and family events to name a few, and understand the desire of grant-makers to see exactly where their money is going and what it is achieving. This might be to give a group of young carers a respite holiday, provide support to patients and their families at regional MPS clinics or offer bereavement support. Grants for medical research are sought whenever we need funds for our ground-breaking programme of clinical studies which are leading to new treatments for MPS and related diseases. We also welcome contributions towards the core costs of providing our nationwide advocacy service and are particularly keen to establish long-term relationships with trusts and foundations whose aims and mission are a close match with ours.
We welcome visits and discussions to explore the different ways in which they can help us improve the lives of individuals with MPS and related diseases, and the families who care for them. We have an effective range of monitoring and evaluation processes in place and provide regular reports on whatever aspect of our work they choose to support.
