The MAYDAY Fund Grant

From The MAYDAY Fund

The MAYDAY Fund is dedicated to alleviating the incidence, degree, and consequence of human physical pain.

Grant uses


The MAYDAY Fund’s current grant-making targets are projects to address the following needs:

  • Research Bench to Bedside
  • Pain Thermometer
  • Knowledge & Networks
  • Alternative Strategies & Therapies

When they last reviewed the mission of the Fund, the Board affirmed their commitment to the principles of closing the gap between knowledge and practice and that it is better to be a rifle than a shotgun, which translates to their commitment to stay focused so as to create meaningful change.
