The International Brain Research Foundation operates solely on the philanthropy and giving of individuals, corporations, and Government agencies who believe in the dedicated research that IBRF funds - designed to solve the problems associated with brain disorders and diseases. However, only with regular funding can we continue to make a difference in the lives of countless individuals whose lives are affected.

There are many ways you can donate to the International Brain Research Foundation. Please know that your donation will be meaningful as IBRF expands its activities to embrace more and more research initiatives.

  • Make a donation online or through the mail - see the donation box to the above.
  • Memorial Gift - Make a donation in memory of someone who has died from a brain disorder or who was committed to the lifesaving work of IBRF. The International Brain Research Foundation will send a personalized card acknowledging your gift.
  • Honor Gift - Make a donation to commemorate a holiday, birthday, wedding, or other special occasion. The special person you honor will receive a card from the International Brain Research Foundation notifying him or her of your thoughtfulness and generosity.
  • General Donation - Make a donation in your own name to support the programs of the International Brain Research Foundation.
  • Leave a legacy - Leaving a legacy is as simple as adding the International Brain Research Foundation to your will. However big or small your bequest, it will help us to make a real difference in the lives of people with neurological disorders and conditions for many years to come.
  • Corporate Sponsorship - Corporate donors benefit from increased visibility, positive association with the IBRF brand, and the opportunity to help invest in the future of life through research in the sciences. IBRF corporate donors give in a number of ways, including funding, program support, and in-kind contributions of products or services.
  • Matching Gifts - Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!
