Donaghue Foundation

Organization Overview

The Patrick and Catherine Weldon Donaghue Medical Research Foundation works to be an imaginative, collaborative and engaged partner in health research that provides practical benefit to improve health. Donaghue is particularly interested in funding research that has the potential for direct, near-term impact to improve health and in supporting initiatives designed to promote the transfer of knowledge to useful applications. From a gift of $53 million from Ethel Donaghue in memory of her parents, Donaghue has provided $87 million in research grants.
