We take seriously our responsibility to the Parkinson's community. Since our inception in 2000, 88 cents of every dollar spent by The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) has gone directly to grants and initiatives to speed a cure for Parkinson's disease.
Our 2017 Annual Report outlines our roadmaps for increasing momentum in understanding Parkinson's and accelerating new treatments — strengthened by the generous dedication of our community.
A Note from Michael
One of the great gifts of my life is that I've been in a position to take my experience with Parkinson's and combine it with the perspectives and expertise of others to accelerate improved treatments and a cure.
In 2017, thanks to your generosity and fierce belief in our shared mission, we moved closer to this goal than ever before.
For helping us put breakthroughs within reach, thank you.
Annual Letter from the CEO and the Co-founder
"Understanding Parkinson's disease is the starting point of every effort to accelerate the cure. Years of work spent uncovering Parkinson's secrets — defining the highly variable patient experience, shedding light on genetic origins of disease, mapping molecular pathways — are now paying off in a tangible quickening tempo of progress. And your support is helping us more quickly usher in a future without Parkinson's.

In 2017, this grassroots fundraising community united 175,000 friends and family around our shared commitment to curing Parkinson's, with 100 percent of all event proceeds going directly to the Foundation's high-impact programs.
Since day one, our commitment to accountability, transparency and efficiency has been fundamental to our progress. And, it will continue shape our work until we cure Parkinson's and go out of business.
We can't do it alone, and we thank you for choosing to support our mission to speed a cure for Parkinson's.
