The Parkinson's Foundation Minnesota & Dakotas Chapter is looking for interested individuals to serve on our regional Advisory Board. The Regional Advisory Board is a fund- and awareness-raising volunteer board of diverse professionals committed to growing our Chapter network and helping raise funds--so that we can serve more people living with Parkinson's disease, their care-partners, clinicians, and supportive professionals. The Parkinson's Foundation is an established national nonprofit with an annual budget of $38M. Seventeen chapters across the country support initiatives on the ground while helping strategize program, research and grant-making. The Minnesota and Dakotas Chapter Board will help us grow to reach all 20,000+ individuals living with PD in our 3-state area. The full Board meets virtually &/or in person (Twin Cities) 6 times/ year and committees of the board meet as needed. Board members take on individual and project-based work depending on their skills, interests, and networks/ industries. A modest personal financial contribution as well as a commitment to active fundraising is expected. The Chapter is responsible for about $500K in annual revenue through regional fundraising events and donations. The Parkinson's community is an inspiring and strong one, and our National Board and regional staff and volunteers are truly supportive. Help us bring more attention to this common and devastating disease while supporting better care and research towards a cure, all while working alongside dedicated professionals like yourself--Thank you!
About Parkinson's Foundation
200 SE 1st Street, Ste 800, Miami, FL 33131, US
The Parkinson’s Foundation makes life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure. In everything we do, we build on the energy, experience and passion of our global Parkinson’s community.
We are the Parkinson’s Foundation. A community. An alliance. A movement. Where people living with Parkinson’s, families, caregivers, scientists, advocates, donors and volunteers join forces to improve lives and advance toward a cure.
For over half a century, we’ve made tangible progress on all fronts, from the largest clinical study of Parkinson’s ever, which has significantly improved care, to breakthrough treatments. Today, we continue to:
- Provide life-changing support to people living with Parkinson’s and their caregivers
- Fund game-changing research on treatment and care
- Convene the best minds from every corner of the global Parkinson’s community to find new approaches that enhance care and move us closer to a cure.
Everything we do is based on experience and informed by facts. The people we serve deserve nothing less than the highest level of support based on validated research and deep encouragement grounded in reality. Our donors and volunteers need to know that we are 100% accountable. This is why we focus on verifiable outcomes, not vague promises.
In partnership with the entire Parkinson’s community, we are making a real difference in people’s lives. And we have the research, the data - and the stories - to prove it. This is what happens when we all pull together as one global, determined and inspired movement. Better Lives. Together.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
