Since 1971, the Foundation has contributed over $23.5 million toward furthering health research in Manitoba. The MMSF is greatly indebted to Manitoba Blue Cross, which sustains the Foundation by covering the overhead and administration costs, as well as providing a significant portion of the funding for the grants. This allows the Foundation to place its resources directly toward advancing health research and education. The Foundation’s highest priority for funding is given to new researchers who are establishing themselves in Manitoba and do not yet have long-term stable funding for their research.
