Together, we can help people living with Parkinson’s and other movement disorders to learn and live more fully through our cutting-edge programming and services. Ready to join us, hand-in-hand?
Our programs are interactive, lively and engaging, and they aren’t just geared towards the person with the movement disorder. Our unique Ecosystem© considers everyone from care partners, to family, friends, support group leaders and even health care providers. When everyone surrounding the person with the movement disorder is armed with knowledge and resources, the easier it becomes for that person to learn and live more fully.
Our programs are free to anyone who wants to attend but they are not without cost.
Here are some ways you can help PMD Alliance continue to expand its reach and impact.
By making a monthly contribution, you empower PMD Alliance to provide cutting-edge, life-changing programs year-round, nationwide. Become an Impact Partner today!
Gifts in Memory or Honor of a Loved One
Honor the memory of a loved one with a memorial gift.
Many donors offer donations to encourage other people to give. Our matching gifts program is an easy way to double or even triple the impact of your donation.
Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for employees to help PMD Alliance meet its mission. No matter the size of the gift, you can make a big difference by directing a portion of your paycheck to PMD Alliance.
Donate Your Vehicle
PMD Alliance works with a third-party company to coordinate donations of cars, trucks, boats, and RVs nationwide. Your vehicle can be in any condition and the pick up is FREE.
IRA Charitable Rollover
If you are 70½ years old or older, you are eligible to take advantage of a simple way to support PMD Alliance and receive tax benefits in return. Persons who are eligible can give up to $100,000 from their IRA directly to a qualified charity without having to pay income taxes on the money.
Stocks, Bonds, & Real Estate
Many people choose to make a planned gift to PMD Alliance through bequests, stocks and bonds, gifts of real estate, and more. This type of giving not only makes a lasting difference to the people we serve, but can also help you to navigate capital gains taxes, and other tax deductions.
