Many Ways to Give
Are you looking to contribute to Parkinson’s research in a way that better fits your financial planning and lifestyle?
Perhaps you are interested in making a donation through your workplace or prefer a type of gift that "gives back” (for example, cash gifts and bequests, property and trust arrangements)?
These gifts may have benefits including, but not limited to:
- Providing immediate tax benefits
- Conferring advantages ranging from guaranteed income for life to provide reliable, tax-protected ways of transferring wealth to the next generation
- Including a matching gift from your employer
Bear in mind that while we prefer unrestricted gifts (that is, gifts without conditions, enabling us to place them where they can do the most good at the time we receive them), we also respect the donor's wish to restrict a gift to one or more of the activities conducted under the Foundation's auspices (fellowships, for example, or public education or research).
