You can make a tribute gift in honor or memory of someone and CurePSP will notify them/their family of your gift. You can join our amazing community of monthly supporters, or you can simply go to our online donation form and make a gift to CurePSP.
Ways to Give
There are a variety of ways to help CurePSP, and your money will go immediately to work helping us to provide; information where it is needed most; support for patients; various programs of awareness and education; and funding for the most promising research into treatment and a cure for neurodegeneration.
Our organization is extremely grateful to our donors and volunteers for all that they do, and we would love to have you involved too! Volunteering for a CurePSP organization event such as our Family Conferences or Research Symposiums, or volunteering to become a support group leader is always appreciated. Our support group leader program includes training, guidance, and connection to a community of other group leaders across the country. For more information about volunteer opportunities email email@example.com.
If you have professional skills and time to spare, we have various operational duties that you can help with – marketing, event planning, and public relations, to name just a few! Give us a call at 347-294-2873 (CURE) to see how you can help.
