Our Mission is to transform the way people live with Parkinson's through awareness, education, advocacy, and care. 

We’re the lifeline of HOPE to over 100,000 people impacted by Parkinson’s in the Northwest. Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation achieves its mission through programs that support specialty care, produce and distribute free educational and support resources, promote events that contribute positively to the Parkinson’s community, raise awareness of Parkinson’s and develop self-care tools that help improve quality of life for people with Parkinson’s, their care-partners and families.

“When we did a golf fundraiser in Robbie’s memory, we really wanted the funds raised to help those with Parkinson’s to stay local. Thank you for doing that for people. This is really important work.”

“What a helpful painting class. Listening to music while painting soothed my nerves. I also processed emotions, (I never knew life as hard until symptoms and diagnosis). After class, my thoughts were clearer than at the beginning. My motor skills and typing were more coordinated. I am sharing my painting, so others know any skill (or no skill) is welcome!

“The class was a calm, no-pressure and mindful experience. A respite in the day. I also learned some painting tips that I will use again.”
