The reality is that we need to fundraise to continue to meet our mandate of helping people living with Parkinson’s in Newfoundland and Labrador. About 90% of our budget comes from donations and special events. We appreciate the financial support we receive from you, our members, and your families and friends. We run a very tight financial ship here at Parkinson Society Newfoundland and Labrador. Your Board of directors has given very clear direction that every dollar must be mission-focused on supporting our members in some way.

There are many ways to support us:

Honour Donations – To recognize someone who is living with Parkinson’s or someone who has contributed to helping the Parkinson’s community.

In Memoriam Donations – To honour the memory of someone who lived with Parkinson’s.

Monthly Donor – We can process a monthly charge to your credit card.

Support our Events – Get a table of friends together and come to our Gala!
