Inching towards milestones
It's not a matter of 'if', but 'when'

As Ava, Danelle and Ross know, you don't reach milestones immediately. You reach them through a series of inchstones. 

With your support, we can turn today’s research inchstones into tomorrow’s milestones. Will you join us on the pathway to hope? 

Thanks to your generosity

has been funded towards neurological research in the past year. 

Each year the Foundation receives hundreds of requests to support neurological research. Requests for funding far outweigh what is funded each year, however thanks to our supporters we have been able to make a significant impact.

While the majority of our funds are directed to research, other parts of the Foundation's remit include education and raising awareness. 

To enable the Foundation to run smoothly, and to continue to raise funds, we have dedicated Admin and Fundraising teams. Our costs for admin and fundraising are offset by the Foundation's income from investments, meaning that your donations can be directed primarily to research and education.
