Overview

Since 1993, with an initial gift of $13M, The MAYDAY Fund has supported innovative projects to close the gap between knowledge and practice in the treatment of pain, as well projects to build on the current knowledge base. Understanding that creating meaningful change with modest funding is a challenge, MAYDAY tends to provide a significant support to a handful of projects annually, rather than making large numbers of smaller grants. While we have specific grant-making targets, the Fund also remains open to undertaking unusual opportunities that present from time to time.

To date The MAYDAY Fund has made 327 discrete grants representing a total value of $22.4 million. All of Mayday’s grants since inception are listed here. The list can be sorted by year and by topics.
