Run by NorthCare Charity, The Geoffrey Jefferson Brain Research Fund facilitates philanthropic donations from those interested in supporting our vital ongoing research.
Although most funding for specific research projects comes from national bodies such as the Medical Research Council and charities such as The Brain Tumour charity, our research fund allows us to carry out small pilot projects quickly and effectively without the need for external funding.
This ensures we can drive forward small research projects from conception into large-scale projects. Data from pilot projects can provide the evidence and rationale for larger externally funded grants, meaning any donations, small or large, have a huge impact on future research.
How to donate
You can donate to our research fund through a card payment via Stripe.
If you would like to discuss how you can make a donation through a trust and foundation, or a company, or if you have any questions about making a donation, please contact NorthCare Charity.
