Grants to Florida nonprofit organizations, schools, and government entities in eligible locations for medical research. Funding is intended for studies and research into discovering a cause or cure for cancer, Alzheimer's, and other widespread diseases. The Foundation funds medical research principally conducted in Brevard County, although it is open to excellent research projects conducted in other regions throughout the United States.

The Foundation will give the highest priority (and scores) to proposals based on the following:

  • Qualifications of a lead researcher or research team,
  • Research significance,
  • Innovation,
  • Specific research plan and how the grant dollars will be used, i.e. what the grant will fund,
  • Collaborations and available resources,
  • Outcomes anticipated, and
  • Proposed budget.

Additionally, the Grant Committee honors donor intent in grant awards and will consider the number served by finding a cause or cure.
