The Finnish Parkinson Foundation is a grant-awarding foundation established by the Finnish Parkinson’s Association with a patient’s bequest to award grants for scientific research into movement disorders. The Foundation awards about 100,000 euros in grants from returns on assets every year. There are very few, if any, research projects focusing on rare diseases. The Foundation’s grants have been used to launch research into areas such as Wilson’s and Huntington’s disease and dystonia.

In 2023, the tax-free amount of annual grants for researchers is 24,965.04 euros, which amounts to 2,080.42 euros per month. The basis of the tax-free limit for grants is the annual amount of the government grants for artists confirmed by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
