The Michael J. Fox Foundation knows how hard our inspiring Team Fox members work to raise donations. That's why prominent donors cover the costs incurred by the Foundation to run the Team Fox program — so that every penny donated by Team Fox members can go straight to our high-impact research programs to help speed a cure for Parkinson's disease.

What does this mean for Team Fox members? The Michael J. Fox Foundation is not responsible for expenses Team Fox members incur while planning their event. But we have always worked hand-in-hand with Team Fox members to make sure that every Team Fox event adheres to best practices in fundraising. We provide hands-on support to help our members keep fundraising costs low, or even get them covered by a community partner (for example by securing sponsorships and/or in-kind donations from local businesses). The lower the cost of the event, the more dollars will be donated to MJFF and go straight to Parkinson's research.
What does this mean for Team Fox supporters and donors? We understand how important it is to you to know that your donation is being spent wisely. (Across all of its activities, The Michael J. Fox Foundation spends 89 cents of every dollar on research.) We hope you will give generously to Team Fox in your community knowing that 100% of the proceeds of the Team Fox fundraiser you support will go to research programs driven by our Foundation. Team Fox members share the Foundation's single-minded goal: Raise funds and awareness to speed better treatments and a cure for Parkinson's disease.
