MS Angels

The MS Angels are a select gathering of well-connected women from the business community, dedicated to helping MS research in Australia and donating their time and funds in a way that allows them to network with other interesting women. 

The MS Angels were founded in late 2008 by two Sydney business women who each have a sibling with MS and were looking to make more than the usual contribution to MS research.  The increasingly worrying outlook for corporate women also spurred the idea of recruiting an exclusive and diverse group of fabulous corporate women – current and future leaders – who could contribute to MS research and also work together to build a quality women’s network.

MS Angels groups now operate in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane and include both well-known current female business leaders and also future female business leaders in current management positions.

 

The MS Angels network offers the following benefits:

  • Fantastic networking opportunities
  • High profile guest speakers
  • Mentoring opportunities
  • Supporting a specific MS research project and receiving regular updates from their chosen researcher
  • Opportunity to learn about other industries
  • Social opportunities
Underlying the MS Angels concept is the fact that MS is a disease that commonly impacts women in their early 30s, just when their family life and career may be blossoming – so it is a cause that warrants support from well-connected women to both fund research and raise awareness amongst colleagues, friends and families.
 

MS Angels - Canberra

In order to support MS research each Angel makes a donation of $2,000 per year (either via their company or as a personal donation) which is collectively invested in a research project (chosen by each group) that will make a real contribution to solving MS.  
 
Socially, each MS Angels’ group meets for a series of six exclusive events over 12 months, with special invited guests, to get to know each other and develop their networks in a meaningful and enjoyable way. All venues and catering are provided by corporate sponsors, meaning that all funds raised by the MS Angels go directly to the MS research where it is most needed.
