This exclusive giving program is designed to make you an essential aspect of the local health research community. When you join DMRF Influencers, at either the Influencer or Influencer Champion level, you become a dedicated, two-year supporter and an influencer of local, leading-edge health research.

Why get involved?

You become part of a course-changing movement.

DMRF Influencers are fostering a culture shift. They crave innovation, are committed to improving health outcomes locally, nationally, and internationally, and they fuel important health research that will bring us closer to improved treatments, better access to healthcare and cures for diseases.

You get to peek behind the scenes.

As a DMRF Influencer, you will get a behind the scenes look at health research that is changing the narrative across our region. You will have the opportunity to connect with other DMRF Influencers. You will have a say in which innovative research project will receive funding, thereby impacting health outcomes.

You can influence funding.

As a DMRF Influencer, you will have a seat at the local health research table through your participation in the exclusive DMRF Influencers Decision-Makers Event. There, three critical health research projects will be presented and you, along with other DMRF Influencers, will have the opportunity to cast your vote as to which one you want to support. So, while health researchers use their talent, time, and expertise to advance health outcomes, you too play a crucial role in this momentum as a DMRF Influencer!

In addition to all this, you can expect exclusive research updates and an opportunity to network with a community of philanthropists and health professionals while having a say in which research project your membership pledges will support. 

I began donating to DMRF about five years ago, at age 8. I was inspired by the research my dad was doing at Dalhousie, and I wanted to help make a difference. I am proud to participate in the DMRF Influencer Program with my family, to help better the future.
- Sophie McCormick, donor, and daughter of Dalhousie Researcher Dr. Craig McCormick
