How Funding Works


The Brain Research Foundation is devoted to helping bold ideas have a chance to flourish. Through your donations to the BRF, we provide researchers with the start-up funds they need to conduct new research projects—projects that can lead to discoveries with the power to improve the lives of those suffering from neurological disorders.

Where your money goes

You can make a general donation and let us decide how best to use it, donate in honor of a special person or occasion, or support research into a specific disease. Make a donation today.

Undesignated giving can often have the greatest impact. We allocate unspecified gifts where they are most needed. If you donate to support research into a specific disease, the Brain Research Foundation will (when possible) assign your gift to the project that best supports research into that or a closely related field.

In honor of a person or occasion

If your donation honors a special person or occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, the Brain Research Foundation can send an acknowledgement card to the person of your choice.

Regardless of where you’d like your gift to go, we sincerely appreciate your decision to donate to the Brain Research Foundation.
