Community Research Fund

The Community Research Fund Program allows donors to impact progress by funding research on a specific tumor type that directly affects their lives. This program leverages a team of highly experienced, nationally-recognized scientific experts, working with National Brain Tumor Society staff and partner organizations, to determine the best investment strategy for each fund. Donations large and small can be earmarked and combined to fund research grants. While one individual or family may not be able to fund a research grant in its entirety, combining their donations with others can make a meaningful impact.

Once a fund has met a minimal threshold for funding scientific projects, NBTS will seek proposals for a research grant. This program is designed to support catalytic research projects that will significantly move the field forward. These may include “out-of-the-box” projects or transformative research geared to driving development of new therapies. The applications will be assessed by our staff and formally reviewed by nationally recognized scientific experts.
