Who We Are

$30 billion in philanthropic funds are spent annually to advance medical research for treatments and cures. Deployed strategically, this capital can be the catalyst that creates systemic change and puts effective, life-changing diagnostics and treatment within reach.  

MI Philanthropy’s Science Philanthropy Accelerator for Research and Collaboration (SPARC) works to develop, launch, and lead initiatives that fund medical research and invest to accelerate the development of tools and treatments that will bring better health to millions of people.  Our expertise lies within a number of medical research fields, including neuroscience, mental health, oncology, rare disease, and immunology. 

We partner with philanthropists, leading them through complex medical research and clinical systems and guiding pathways for philanthropy to create a healthy, equitable world.
