The Parkinson’s Foundation makes life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure. In everything we do, we build on the energy, experience and passion of our global Parkinson’s community.


Our team works tirelessly every day with one urgent goal in mind: Accelerating breakthroughs patients can feel in their everyday lives. We strive to make progress in the following key areas by evaluating risk, opportunities, and challenges through a patient-focused lens.


The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) was founded in 1961 with the dual purpose to Ease the Burden - Find the Cure for Parkinson's disease.In that time, APDA has raised and invested more than $87 million to fund research, patient services and education, and elevate public awareness. As the country's largest Parkinson's grassroots organization, APDA aims to Ease the Burden for the more than one million Americans with Parkinson's disease and their families through a nationwide network of Chapters, Information and Referral (I&R) Centers, and support groups.


The mission of The NeuroCommunity Foundation is to support research, provide educational resources and promote awareness for those suffering from the disabling effects of Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury.

We not only help those who are suffering from the physical impairments of these afflictions, but also the cognitive ones: memory, reasoning, attention, language, problem solving, visual comprehension, etc. Cognition is the one aspect of a person’s life that has the most significant impact. Yet, until now, there have been very inadequate resources for cognitive loss, which is increasing every year.
