Corporate Fundraising

MDS UK would not exist without the very early and generous assistance of several main sponsors – Celgene, Novartis Oncology – still ongoing as well as Baker Tilly (from 2008-2013).

Since October 2014, Foster Denovo is kindly assisting MDS UK with meeting space. We are extremely grateful for the help of all our sponsors.

We would like to encourage many more industry partners and private companies to engage with us and help us raise funds and awareness of MDS

Can you help?

This extra awareness is particularly important for rarer conditions like MDS which are totally unknown amongst the general population.

It is much easier to raise funds for well known diseases – so we need all the help we can get. Some companies mention their chosen charity in their corporate newsletter – another fabulous awareness advantage!

We will be listing these companies on this Corporate Fundraising page and hope that many more will join this generous practices.
