Right now we are primarily interested in research projects studying the mechanisms of neurodegeneration and psoriatic arthritis.
The Krembil Foundation does not run granting competitions or have a formal granting application. Please review our five-stage approach to better understand how we work. If you are interested in submitting an idea, please get in touch via the contact us page. We review all incoming research ideas on a rolling basis throughout the year.
Please submit a Letter of Intent to email@example.com with a subject line in the following format: "Grant Application_Applicant's Last name, First Name_Type of Grant(Research or Other)".
Due to the high volume of submissions, only applicants who are chosen to move to the next stage of the application process will be contacted by us.
The nursing award program is open to RNs and RPNs currently working at the Toronto Western Hospital. For more information please visit the Krembil Nursing Awards website at https://www.uhn.ca/corporate/For_Staff/Krembil_Nursing_Awards
We do not accept unsolicited proposals. Our board approaches organizations based on current interests.
The Foundation makes grants for charitable purposes only; and only to organizations that have been issued a Registered Charity Number under the Income Tax Act of Canada.
At any given time our pipeline has projects in various stages of discovery and proposal development; the number of approved proposals in a given year varies. On average, we issue 2-8 new grants per year.
We require a deep understanding and commitment to each grant in order to deliver on our promise to be a partner. Keeping a small portfolio ensures we have the capacity to commit our time to understand and oversee each research grant. At any given time our medical research portfolio contains 20-30 grants.
Typically we grant funds with support between 2-5 years. We are flexible to ensure our granting timeline is aligned with project requirements.
This question is discussed in the third stage of our process. We are flexible to ensure funding is aligned with project requirements.
At any given time, our pipeline has projects in various stages of discovery and proposal development and there is a limited capacity to pursue every project that does fit within our funding priorities. Due to the volume of requests we receive, only those being considered will be contacted. If you are not selected to continue in our process, this does not reflect the importance or significance of your funding request ; it is the result of having the difficult task of choosing from the many requests we received.
We do not support the following types of requests: general administration costs, operating costs, deficit financing, endowments, capital campaigns, general fundraising, construction of new or existing facilities or grants to private individuals.
Ontario is currently our largest benefactor, but we fund across Canada.
