Where does the money go?

All funds we raise go to support the research, education/outreach and clinical efforts of Johns Hopkins Medicine. There is no exact formula for allotting funds to each category – it all depends on the requests made of the PDMD Center from community partners as well as the promising research and patient care projects that emerge. The decisions are made by the PDMD Center care team as a group and are focused on projects that are sustainable and have the potential to improve the lives of those with PD and their care partners. In a typical year:

  • 80% of funds are directed to these initiatives within the Johns Hopkins PDMD center.
  • 20% is earmarked to support broader patient care, education and discovery initiatives, like basic science research that is central to the advancement of knowledge in all disciplines of medicine, the training of the next generation of care providers and researchers, and ensuring facilities are comfortable for patients and their families.
