Where Does Giving Deliver Breakthroughs? HERE.

In this year like no other, The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) is laser-focused on limiting disruption and maintaining momentum in Parkinson’s research. The urgency of our mission and the efficiency of our spending remain vital to our operations. Backed by the generosity of our supporters, MJFF has deployed $57 million for critical research projects in 2020.

We pledged to fund as much research as possible and we won’t stop now. Nonprofit organizations are universally facing revenue shortfalls and new hurdles — and MJFF is no exception. Parkinson’s research needs your support now more than ever, which is why we’re giving you more options for getting involved.

If you’re able, consider contributing to our mission in one or more of the following ways:

Committing to Monthly Progress: Recurring donations — of any amount — ensure we have funding for new projects throughout the year that we can deploy immediately to speed progress faster.

If you prefer to make a one-time donation, click here. Your contribution will work just as hard to fund critical Parkinson’s science.

Planning for the Future: From estate gifts to an IRA charitable rollover, we will work with you to find the plan that lets you provide for your family and support the Foundation. Contact our team directly at or 212-509-1524 to learn more or get started.

Supporting Research as You Shop: AmazonSmile offers the same products, prices and service as Amazon, but a percentage of your eligible purchase total will be donated to MJFF.

Sharing Meaningful Moments: With in-person celebrations on hold, tribute pages offer a safe and meaningful way to celebrate a special occasion by asking for donations in lieu of gifts. Share why progress in Parkinson’s research matters to you and invite others to contribute on your behalf.

Getting Involved Virtually: There are multiple ways to engage with the Foundation and the PD community. Run, walk and raise critical funds through our Virtual 5K/10K or join our founders and scientists for online conversations.

Parkinson’s research can and will continue moving forward, here. We stand ready to advance the most important scientific opportunities and are grateful to the individuals and families that entrust us to steward their donations quickly and efficiently for maximum impact.
