Acorda’s mission is to develop therapies to restore function and improve the lives of people with neurological disorders. Our company is devoted to supporting neurological research, education, and patient assistance through grant and sponsorship programs. We support a broad group of organizations based on the principles of scientifically rigorous research and programs designed to improve patient education and care.

The grants website provides an overview of the parameters by which we review and assess requests for financial support.

Acorda provides grants and sponsorships for academic and other medical centers, medical and professional societies and associations, and patient organizations that are involved in neurological research and education. We also provide philanthropic support to qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, particularly those focused on neurological research, education, and patient support.
