The Board, and Staff and Volunteers of the Michigan Parkinson Foundation MPF), are committed to advancing programs throughout the state. A new Strategic Plan has been established with the following mandate: to assist the approximately 35,000 people affected by Parkinson's in Michigan with direct support and services, to be a source of the most current information, a vital link to the medical community, and an advocate for people affected by Parkinson's.
We are focusing on bringing an expanded level of services to the Parkinson's community directly, using technology (web casts, teleconferences, etc.) to reach people throughout Michigan, to enhance the quality of patient care and support services through educational and other programs, to expand and enhance support groups to continue to energize our support groups.
MPF has instituted an ambitious plan to increase revenue so that MPF's can continue to carry out its mission.
We hope that you will join with our committed team in raising funds for Michigan Parkinson Foundation. We cannot work in a vacuum.

The act of philanthropy is a spiritual act, an expression of caring for one's fellow human beings. It is a belief in the future and that the future can be good. It is investing in that future. It is helping to make the dream come true.
