Include ampersand as part of a string in a SQL query

I have the following query
Select NgoName As "NGO",  
    dbo.FormatToIndianCurrency(TotalRaised) As "Total Raised"    
      From tblNgoDailyReciepts2013 tnd with (nolock)  
      inner join manufacturer mfi with (nolock) on tnd.NgoName=mfi.Name  
where mfi.name  in (@Ngolist)  
      Order By TotalRaised desc  
I am passing a set of comma separated string  as part of the @Ngolist parameter. The query seems to work fine as long as there is no & as part of the  @Ngolist   so for example it works fine with   mfi.name  in ('A','B') . However if I have an ampersand the results are not what are expected.
So for example if I have  mfi.name  in ('A&Company','B') it does not produce the correct result.

Any ideas on how I can go about fixing this ?

Thanks,
Aditya

A long string usually cannot serve an IN list. Either put all of the possible values in a temporary table and change it to:

where mfi.name in (select name from @MyTempTable)
or use the charindex function:

where charindex(mfi.name, @Ngolist) > 0
The ampersand may not be the cause of the problem.
