We take our responsibility to our donors seriously. We're proud that currently, 89 cents of every dollar we spend goes straight to grants and initiatives to speed a cure for Parkinson's disease (88 cents since inception in 2000).
We’re obsessed with efficiency
We are outcomes-focused, incorporating milestones into every award and tying grant payments to achievements of those milestones. We work with awardees to troubleshoot and tackle problems as they arise, but if the science stalls, we halt funding so that limited resources can be reallocated to other efforts.
We’re working to go out of business
We believe that to find a cure for Parkinson’s as quickly as possible, our capital needs to push research forward today. That’s why we deliberately hold no endowment or excessive reserves, instead seeking to deploy funds raised as quickly and wisely as possible.
In 2012, our whole community played a role in The Michael J. Fox Foundation's efforts to accelerate the cure. Our momentum keeps building - in the Parkinson's drug development pipeline and across the PD research enterprise.READ FULL REPORT
