Imagine a world where we learn how to heal the brain, where people do not live with the lifelong effects of brain injury, and where, rather than accelerating a disease, we can slow its progression or even stop it in its tracks.
Since its inception in 1980, the Brain Injury Association of America has supported the people, programs, and institutions that have advanced brain injury science and medicine. In doing so, the Association has played a pivotal role in improving treatment and care of individuals with brain injury. The pinnacle of BIAA’s commitment to research is the creation of the Brain Injury Research Fund, established in 2019.
The only thing preventing discovery of life-changing treatments for chronic brain injury is a lack of funding.
There are many ways to support brain injury research:
- Make a gift to the Brain Injury Research Fund to support the Association’s current annual commitment to the best and most promising research projects.
- Advance the Association’s ability to fund research by establishing a new Dissertation or Seed Grant in honor or memory of a loved one by making a single year or multi-year commitment or in perpetuity though an endowment.
- Extend the Association’s ability to fund research by creating a named fund that supports one or more grants over time, invest in a particular line of work, or support the area of greatest need.
- Transform the Association’s ability to fund the most promising research by considering a planned gift or remembering the Brain Injury Research Fund in your will or estate plan.
