Opportunities to Make an Impact

Here are just a few of the many ways you can help advance our work.

Advancing Research

The Parkinson’s Foundation research strategy aims to close the gaps in knowledge about Parkinson’s — from its basic biology to its impact on the brain and its effects on people. We work to accelerate our findings, quickly applying them to improved treatments and care today.

Improving Outcomes Through Care

We work to improve the standard of care for everyone with Parkinson’s. When people with Parkinson’s receive care that puts them first and engages their care partners, they can better manage their symptoms and experience a higher quality of life.

Educating & Empowering

All people living with Parkinson’s, care partners and their families need access to information and resources. Our community grants provide essential local programs while our new, interactive virtual events bring our community together.
