Science Philanthropy Accelerator for Research and Collaboration

Launching and Leading Scientific Funding Programs

Once a funding strategy has been identified, SPARC advisors work alongside our philanthropic partners to develop programs that transform medical research systems. Each funding initiative is custom designed. Drawing from deep experience, we ensure that best practices and lessons learned from past efforts inform implementation tactics.   

MI Philanthropy SPARC advisors manage the full cycle of a grant process, starting from developing and distributing funding announcements, scientific vetting, making recommendations for and recruiting advisory boards, and managing grant agreement execution with partner organizations.  

Once programs are launched, we work to develop community and accelerate the trajectory of research through a variety of field-building activities, such as facilitating targeted collaboration, driving scientific consensus, and hosting scientific convenings.
