Patient Advocacy: Top Grant-Giving Disease Foundations
This week, GEN (Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News), publishes an online list of the top 35 Nonprofit Disease Foundations (2015 Edition) that give grants and awards for research. The Nonprofit Disease Foundations are ranked by the “percentage of total expenses spent on these grants and awards.”
Per the article:
“The list does not constitute a complete listing of all disease foundations. Also, the list does not include Section 501(c)(3) exempt private foundations (Bill & Melinda Gates, Clinton) or institutions that care for patients as well as carry out research (Dana-Farber, Mayo Clinic) or research institutes.”
The chart below identifies the top 10 Nonprofit Disease Foundations plus the rare disease foundations ranked among the 11-35. The data in the chart below is from the online article published in GEN.
