Grant Description
Grants of up to $25,000 to USA nonprofit organizations, for-profits, hospitals, nursing facilities, and fitness programs for community programs and projects that benefit individuals with Parkinson's disease. Focus areas include mental health, exercise, and supporting care partners of individuals with PD.

The Parkinson’s Foundation funds community grants that further the health, wellness and education of people with Parkinson's disease (PD) across the U.S.

The Parkinson's Foundation funds community-based education and outreach programs that address unmet needs in the Parkinson’s community through its Community Grants program. The Foundation’s model of grant funding is designed to support the best programs that are impactful, scalable, sustainable and measurable. In keeping with this model, this program will fund initiatives based on merit, as determined by the Foundation’s peer review committees. The Foundation may limit the amount of funding available to organizations that have received Community Grant funding for more than three years. The Foundation will fund organizations and institutions that demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. 

Programs for the FY2023 grant cycle must incorporate at least one of the following focus areas:

  • Programs that educate and deliver exercise specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s. Programs should provide education and activities designed by professionals with experience in the Parkinson’s exercise field. Priority consideration will be given to programs that align with the Parkinson's Exercise Recommendations to deliver targeted optimal outcomes.
  • Initiatives that reach care partners. Programs should provide information and resources that address priority topics for primary and secondary care partners and have measurable outcomes. 
  • Programs that address mental health and Parkinson’s. Programs should provide information on ways to promote awareness, support, education, and coping mechanism(s) that help improve the emotional, psychological, and social well-being of those living with Parkinson’s, their families and care partners affected by PD
