Who They Are
Donors Cure is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2013 in Charleston, South Carolina. Our goal is to provide a centralized platform where donors can support specific, qualified biomedical research projects led by researchers at US universities and institutions. Scientists are responsible for finding funding to support their research and the process is extremely competitive. Researchers spend an estimated 40% of their time either planning, preparing or writing grant applications. In the United States, 60% of all medical research is funded through government agencies such as the National Health Institute (NIH), however, the money these agencies have available is limited.
