How To Donate

The Medical Research Foundation (MRF) was established by Memorial University of Newfoundland to assist the Faculty of Medicine to develop and maintain research excellence to help meet the needs of the province and its people. The MRF holds research grant competitions each year to help make quality research and health initiatives a reality for our community.

Memorial University gratefully accepts donations from individuals, corporations, and other foundations interested in supporting health sciences research. Donations we receive help support and grow our Medical Research Endowment, a perpetual fund that produces an annual income used to directly support grants award by the MRF each year.  In addition, in exceptional cases it may also be possible to directly sponsor a specific grant administered by the MRF (please contact our Development staff to discuss such possibilities).

Your tax-deductible gift to the Medical Research Foundation will have an impact on our province. Every donation supports Research that makes a differenceTM. We are pleased to accept your gift in a number of ways including payroll deduction, credit card, cash, or cheque.
