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.
Select from our Bronze, Silver, or Gold partnership levels or choose from many program sponsorship options 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. 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.
Thank you for "flying your flag" for our members and for being a part of the Champions Club!
We encourage you to create a secure donor account for ease of tracking your contributions or you may simply use the red Donate Now button on the sidebar to make a quick and secure recurring donation (please choose Champions Club from the "Select a Campaign" drop-down list, enter a donation amount, check the 'Recurring' box, select a recurring frequency, then click Submit and finish the secure donation form).
NOTE: you must make a monthly or annual recurring donation to be in the Champions Club.
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
GAPS Tribute Giving Program
You can make a tax-deductible donation as a tribute to someone in your life who has passed with PD. A tribute gift is a thoughtful way to remember a loved one or dear friend while simultaneously providing resources for future GAPS members. Honor a tribute today with a minimum annual gift of $1,000 and make your gift last a lifetime! (Choose GAPS Tribute Giving Program from the "Select a Campaign" drop-down list, enter a $1,000 amount, check the Recurring box, select a recurring, annual frequency, then click Submit and finish the secure form.)
When making a Tribute gift donation, kindly give us the name of the memorial or person of honor as well as the name of a family member or close friend you wish to notify.

Please know that we will not specify the amount of the donation in the acknowledgement to the family. Thank you.
