Combined Federal
Campaign Giving # 33387

The Migraine Research Foundation is dedicated to ending the debilitating pain of migraine. We fund innovative research to further the understanding of the causes and mechanisms of migraine, to develop improved treatments for sufferers, and to find the cure.

Among the programs we fund are:
– annual research grants
– a special award to encourage young investigators to enter the field of migraine research
For Our Children initiatives to combat childhood migraine.

All our operating costs are underwritten–so every dollar raised goes directly to migraine research.

Be part of the solution: Invest in the cure.
