The Donor Alliance Foundation will conduct a needs assessment survey to determine community needs regarding social, behavioral and clinical research and will provide supplemental funding to small, ongoing research projects in the field of donation and transplantation (i.e., seed grants).

The Foundation anticipates making one-year grants up to $15,000 in the Research program area, largely for seed grants. It will make one-year grants; funds must be expended between Sept. 1, 2018 and Aug. 31, 2019. Because funds are limited, it is anticipated that not all applicants will receive funding.

  • Applications must submit additional narrative along with online application including an executive summary explaining their work/project, the purpose of study, proposed intervention and deliverables. It will be important to make a case for how this grant will help secure long-term funding.
  • Applications may also be submitted for social research funding and will require similar additional documentation about project.
