National Philanthropy Day

November 15th is National Philanthropy Day and DMRF would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our donors, for your continued generosity and support. Health is key to an improved quality of life and research is an essential component of healthcare. As donors, you play an incredible role as agents of change, which underscores the importance of our work just that much more. Nova Scotia is a small but mighty province with a research ecosystem poised for advancement. Philanthropy is needed to advance medical research into real life outcomes. DMRF strives to support health-related researchers at Dalhousie by fundraising to provide the best resources available to bolster their leading-edge work. Here is just a small snap shot of our many donors. Click on each of their photos to learn more about the life-saving health research they are supporting.


Dalhousie’s Faculties of Medicine, Health and Dentistry produce ground-breaking research that is world-renowned and internationally competitive.  

Collaborative and trailblazing health research is revolutionizing health care both locally and abroad while positioning the Maritimes firmly on the world stage.   The time, dedication, and talent it takes to find quicker and more accurate diagnosis, better treatments and, of course, cures, cannot be understated.  As donors, you are making a difference with every gift you make.  We are grateful for your generosity.
