Put a Dent in Necessary Research Without Breaking the Bank

“If 100 of our supporters make a reoccurring donation of just $12 per month ($144 annually, or $0.395 cents per day) it would generate $14,400 per year to help fund Parkinson’s research grants. Along with hosting a handful of events, meeting this goal is a priority for 2023!”

– Steve Hodges, KiMe Founder

Why Donate?

KiMe is on a mission to raise money to fund research focused on finding a cure for Parkinson’s. Our niche is awarding high-risk, high reward research projects, ranging from $25,000 to $50,000, that often go unfunded.

Benefits of Donating to KiMe

  • Donations are tax-deductible
  • 100% of the funding awarded goes to research 
  • You’re helping find a cure for the fastest growing neurological disorder in the world
  • Your impact turns out to be greater than the amount of your donation because of our “Angel Investor” strategy

Chances are, you might be impacted by Parkinson’s or you know someone who is… Thank you for your consideration!
