Children running

Children with healthy brains have better childhoods and better chances of blossoming into secure, successful adults. Make a gift to support a strong start that enhances not only children’s own lives, but also the health and prosperity of our world.

Investing in child and adolescent brain health is an investment in our future

Each gift to the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain brings us closer to our goal of fostering healthy brains for all children. Your donations contribute to groundbreaking research that leads to better outcomes, compassionate care that encourages healing, the development of innovative education and resources for our community, and support for children and their families when they need it most. Make a gift today.

Thank You to Our Donors

The Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain was named in recognition of a $35 million gift from Minnesota Masonic Charities, the University of Minnesota’s largest donor. Thanks to the Masons and several other generous donors—including the Lynne & Andrew Redleaf Foundation, which contributed $15 million to the MIDB and another $6.5 million in related gifts—we have made great strides toward our $100 million fundraising goal.

Still, we need other benevolent donors to step forward to support the institute and its efforts to improve the lives of children and families throughout Minnesota and beyond.
