Finding New Ways to Detect and Address Neurodevelopmental Disabilities

September 9, 2021

Last year, Minnesota Masonic Charities became the first donor to help create and launch MIDB. Building on its remarkable legacy of support for the University of Minnesota to tackle some of the most leading-edge research in cancer and children's health, Minnesota Masonic Charities committed $35 million to establish and name the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain. “Our long-standing partnership with the University of Minnesota aligns with our mission to make meaningful contributions to society. MIDB is another example of how we can unite the incredible expertise of the University with the capacity of Minnesota Masonry to benefit our entire state and, indeed, the world,” said Eric Neetenbeek, president and CEO of Minnesota Masonic Charities.
