About the Partner

The Parkinson’s Foundation is a leading national presence in Parkinson’s disease research, education and public advocacy. They work for the nearly one million people in the US who live with Parkinson’s by funding promising scientific research while supporting people living with Parkinson’s through educational programs and services. 

The Parkinson's Foundation Promise:
The challenges of living with Parkinson's disease, improving care and finding a cure can seem overwhelming. No individual or group can go it alone. We are the Parkinson's Foundation. A community. An Alliance. A movement. Where people living with Parkinson's, families, caregivers, scientists, advocates, donors, and volunteers join forces to improve lives and advance towards a cure.

For over half a century, we've made tanigble progress on all fronts, from the largest clinical study of Parkinson's ever, which has significantly improved care, to breakthrough treatments. Today we continue to:

  • provide life-changing support to people living with Parkinson’s and their caregivers
  • fund game-changing research on treatment and care
  • convene the best minds from every corner of the global Parkinson’s community to find new approaches that enhance care and move us closer to a cure.

Everything we do is based on experience and informed by facts. The people we serve deserve nothing less than the highest level of support based on validated research and deep encouragement grounded in reality. Our donors and volunteers need to know that we are 100% accountable. This is why we focus on verifiable outcomes, not vague promises. In partnership with the entire Parkinson's community, we are making a real difference in people's lives —and we have the research, data, and stories to prove it. This is what happens when we all pull together as one global, determined, and inspired movement. Better. Lives. Together.
