Programs and Partnerships are the backbone of GAPS, which provide opportunities for members to exercise, support one another, and to stay involved in their community. Access to these programs helps our members remain positive, vibrant, healthier, and beat back the Parkinson's Disease progression.
Collaborating with local businesses and organizations is vital to develop community awareness, gain financial contributions to help GAPS reach out to those who cope with Parkinson's Disease every day, and continue to provide programs, education, and advocacy every year.
GAPS is a 100% local and independent organization. We rely solely on the support of our community for our financial solvency. Please consider these ways in which you can contribute to the growing impact GAPS is having on those living with PD in the Upstate of South Carolina.
Organizational Partnerships and Sponsorships
We offer generous advertisement and promotional packages as thanks for your partnership/sponsorship.
Partnership levels range from $10,000 to $30,000 or choose to sponsor on of our GAPS programs such as GAPS Social, GAPS in Motion!, and GAPS Coffee Talk.
Either way, your involvement and generosity help further our mission of improving the quality of life for those living with Parkinson's disease.

BE A CHAMPION. SUPPORT OUR MEMBERS.
Our members are champions who rise and walk despite their challenges.
If you fly a flag for something, you endorse it and believe in it, and you show your support for an organization or an idea in order to encourage others to do the same. For only $16.67 a month, you can be a champion to a person with Parkinson's or their caregiver. You can support one member or multiple members through a recurring monthly or annual contribution. Your generous gift is an investment in your own community that stays completely local, supporting families walking with this disease every day.
