This past weekend Payne Wealth Partners was a proud sponsor for the 2013 Tri-State MS Association’s Autumn Walk that helped raise funds to benefit MS research and care in our local community.
One of our core values is community. We value sharing our resources, time and talents with our local community, and sponsoring various fundraising events are one of the many ways we do.

When you, a family member, or a friend has a question about multiple sclerosis, where do you turn? If you’re like most in the tri-state, you contact us, the Tri-State Multiple Sclerosis Association.
The Tri-State Multiple Sclerosis Association would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are a community based organization helping those suffering with MS and their families. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals living with MS and their families in Southern Indiana, Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky. We are your neighbors, your family and your friends!
We love to share our story, of how volunteers came together in 2001, with a desire to bring better services to the area. Today, thanks to these dedicated people and many more the Tri-State Multiple Sclerosis Association has made a huge difference in the lives of those living with multiple sclerosis and their families here in the tri-state area.
Those services include; free monthly newsletters, monthly support group meetings, educational programs, financial and medical assistance and a MS Certified Nurse for MS symptom management. We also offer fun social events; Family Weekend at Camp Carson, an Adult Weekend, and an exciting new program to fight MS fatigue, initiated by Payne Wealth Partners, “Day of Rest”. We currently have 1400 patients using our services and the numbers are increasing monthly.
It is important to note, the Tri-State Multiple Sclerosis Association is independent of any National MS Organizations, receiving no funds from these groups. Because we are local and independent, all money raised by the Tri-State MS Association stays and is used right here in our local communities. These funds are directed towards meeting the needs of individuals in the tri-state area. We treat everyone coming to us with respect, compassion, honesty, and do our very best to help.
There is no way to fully express our gratitude for the loyalty of the tri-state people. We are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of donors. This support has played a key role in our success, and has helped establish the Tri-State MS Association as a leader in providing services to individuals living with multiple sclerosis and their families. Thanks to local support, our association has touched the lives of thousands – whether they have faced an urgent need, someone to listen to them, or sought to improve the quality of life for them and their families.
The Tri-State MS Association is your local resource for information on multiple sclerosis. We exist to serve you and your loved ones – to offer support, care, and hope…right here at home!
