The Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases (MPS) selected AdvantageNFP Fundraiser, the integrated fundraising, CRM and marketing database solution, to help manage their services, donations and supporter relationships.


The Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases was founded in May 1982. They are the only registered UK charity providing professional support to individuals, families and professionals affected by MPS and related diseases throughout the UK. 

The mucopolysaccharidoses are a group of inherited metabolic diseases in which a defective or missing enzyme causes large amounts of complex sugar molecules to accumulate in harmful amounts in the body's cells and tissues. This accumulation causes permanent, progressive cellular damage that affects appearance, physical abilities, organ and system functioning, and, in most cases, mental development. 

MPS provide a wide range of support services for members and their families.  This includes an advocacy support service, a telephone helpline, clinics, palliative care and bereavement service, as well as giving information and advice.

MPS had an existing fundraising database system which no longer met their needs, so they elected to go out to tender in search of a new fundraising CRM software solution that would better fit their requirements. One of the main prerequisites was to have a CRM system that could record all member information for the advocacy service, it needed to be secure for sensitive information, plus have fundraising functionality that could keep track of events, grants and individual giving.

MPS chose AdvantageNFP Fundraiser as it was an established fundraising software system which could provide a 360° view and included authority levels for restricted record access. Redbourn also provided a complex data migration service to import MPS’s existing data into AdvantageNFP Fundraiser.

MPS organise members who want to participate in drug companies’ trials for various new drugs. MPS organise flights and hotel accommodation, etc. for the members to attend the trials. Using AdvantageNFP Fundraiser improves the administration efficiency for these trials and is easier for all staff involved, to access the information from one single point of reference.  The dashboard enables the CEO to have a clear overview of income and engagement at any given time.

Steve Cast, Managing Director of Redbourn declares, “We are thrilled that AdvantageNFP Fundraiser CRM and fundraising software won the MPS selection process. AdvantageNFP Fundraiser meets the needs of both their CRM and fundraising requirements. Redbourn look forward to supporting MPS with a complete fundraising CRM database solution.”
