In an effort to minimize expenses and maximize funds available directly for research, all fundraising will be done on a volunteer basis and no paid professional fundraisers will be used. As a result the Foundation will target to keep operating expenses under 5%.

Grant proposals submitted by any accredited medical research institution will be considered. Grant recommendations will be made by a scientific advisory board using the guidelines of relevance, excellence and efficient use of funds.

The Foundation has a policy of forbidding any funds it awards from being used for indirect costs incurred by the grantees or institution with whom they may be affiliated.
