Stronger Together - Invest in the Future of Parkinson Disease in Alberta

December 10, 2014
 

Parkinson Alberta plays a significant role in the lives of Albertans affected by Parkinson disease; through our programs and support services, our contributions to research, and our advocacy efforts with governments at various levels and the public at large.  We also strive to cultivate, maintain and strengthen our relationships with health professionals, the business community and post-secondary institutions across the province, nationally and internationally.  We do this so we may better assist our clients in their efforts to live better with Parkinson disease.

 

It is only with your thoughtful, ongoing support that we can continue to offer the best in support, programming, education and funds for research both today and tomorrow.  When you become a member, you are not just "buying a membership" with Parkinson Alberta, you are investing in the future of Parkinson disease in Alberta!

 

What does it mean to be a member of Parkinson Alberta?

First and foremost this is the most effective way to ensure that Parkinson disease is not overlooked in a time where many causes are grappling for attention and funds.  In Alberta alone there are over 19,000 charitable organizations.  When we apply for grants or put together a case for support to a business or government we are always asked “How many members do you have?”  This number is important, and can often mean the difference between being successful in receiving support or not.   For every paid membership we receive, we can count one person as a member.  The more members we have, the stronger our voice and the more influential we become; the more positioned we become to enact meaningful change for Parkinson disease in Alberta.

 

Second, there are tangible benefits that are included in membership:

  • Voting privileges at our Annual General Meetings.  This is your opportunity to truly help guide Parkinson Alberta’s path for today and tomorrow.

  • While our magazine remains available 24/7 on our website; members receive a printed hard copy in the mail.

  • Many of our programs and events offer a reduced cost for members.
