About Dana

Our Mission

The Dana Foundation is a private philanthropic organization dedicated to advancing neuroscience & society by supporting cross-disciplinary intersections such as neuroscience and ethics, law, policy, humanities, and arts. Learn more about our new focus.

Our Programs

We  fund and coordinate programs at the intersections of neuroscience & society for diverse audiences.

Brain Awareness Week
Coordinated by the Dana Foundation, Brain Awareness Week (#BrainWeek, #BrainAwarenessWeek) is the global campaign to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science. Every March, partners host imaginative activities in their communities that share the wonders of the brain and the impact brain science has on our everyday lives.

Much of the Foundation’s support is in the form of grants with an emphasis on neuroscience & society.
