Ways to give

Donating to the Parkinson Association of the Carolinas

The Parkinson Association of the Carolinas (PAC) relies upon the financial support of its individual donors, corporate sponsors and foundations in order to meet our mission to serve as a resource for individuals and their families affected by Parkinson’s disease in the Carolinas, through education, community outreach and direct support”.

Financial contributions and other gifts help PAC to support people with Parkinson’s disease throughout North and South Carolina, so that they can remain independent and stay active in the community, until a cure is found.
