The Krembil Foundation supports various aspects of medical research and education.  Our goal is to support projects, with a start and end that allow us to evaluate efficacy.

​​

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.  The Foundation only supports organizations that are based within Canada.  In general, the Krembil Foundation does not support the following types of requests:


  • General administration costs
  • Operating costs
  • Deficit Financing
  • Endowments or capital campaigns
  • General fundraising
  • Construction of new or existing facilities
  • Grants to private individuals


The Foundation's funding priorities reflect the family's evolving interests, and as such funding priorities may change from time to time.  


If you would like the Foundation to consider funding your research project, you are welcome to submit a letter of interest.  The letter of interest should be limited to 1-2 pages and include the following details: your research position, institution/organization, and fellow collaborators, a description of the project for which you are seeking funding, and a clear indication of how this project aligns with the Foundation's mandate to fund novel, impactful research. Please email all research letter of interests to kate@krembilfoundation.ca. 


If you would like the Foundation to consider funding your education project, you are welcome to submit a letter of interest.  The letter of interest should be limited to 1-2 pages and include the following details: a brief overview of the organization and a description of the project you are seeking funding for.  Please email all education letter of interests to michelle@krembilfoundation.ca.


We do not run funding competitions, we accept letters throughout the year.  Following an internal review process, those that match well with the Foundation's priorities will be further considered.  Further review of a request will involve ongoing communication between the Foundation and the applicant, as well as an invitation to submit a full funding proposal.  Following this review process, a select few will be presented to our Board. 


Due to the volume of requests we receive, only those being further considered will be contacted; we do not accept unsolicited full funding proposals.


The Krembil Foundation carefully reviews each request that falls into the Foundation mandate.  Please note that an unfavourable decision by the Foundation does not reflect the importance or significance of the project request; it is the result of having the difficult task of choosing from the many requests we received.  If your proposal cannot be funded at this time, it may be retained for future consideration.
