Why Give to NPFM?

Your support of the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota allows us to help even more patients and families live well with Parkinson’s.  Your support will enable us to:

  • Elevate the message for Parkinson’s awareness in Minnesota
  • Enable patients to live a better quality of life with Parkinson’s
  • Empower families and friends impacted by Parkinson’s
  • Engage people touched by Parkinson’s to under the disease and get involved
  • Enhance and build Parkinson’s resources for better care in Minnesota communities

Beginning in 2006 sponsors and donors to the NPFM Golf Tournament have raised over $250,000 to fund the Respite Care Grant program.  During 2013 nearly 80 families were served through this grant.  NPFM will be expanding family grants to include help-at-home and exercise grants to help families.

Due to our grantors, sponsors and donors NPFM is leading the way building Parkinson-friendly communities throughout the region.  With a specific focus on individual communities NPFM and its partners are making a difference.

In our 18 year history, we have grown from a small group of volunteers hosting a fundraising walk to one of the leading National Parkinson Foundation chapters in the country.  Our programs, services, and support reach all corners of Minnesota and our neighboring states.
