Ways to Give
Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon is an independent nonprofit relying on community support to grow and enrich the services that reach thousands of households here in the Pacific Northwest. Your support makes it possible for us to meet the needs of our local community, ensuring that no one need face Parkinson’s alone. We work hard to earn and retain the trust of our donors and are committed to being a strong financial steward of your investment with these programs and demonstrating the positive impact you make.
I have the honor to serve as Chair for PRO’s board of directors. I continue to be so proud of our staff during these last many months as everyone transitioned to working from home, with new tools and challenges and to find completely new ways to connect and support. We are dedicated to continue providing services and connection to our clients. In my role on PRO’s board of directors, and both a person with Parkinson's disease and donor, I can personally attest to the direct impact of your contribution. Every dollar is immediately directed to keeping us all connected, safe, and well during this time.
