About Us

The Branch Out Neurological Foundation is a not-for-profit organization based in Calgary, Canada. We accelerate tech solutions and non-pharmaceutical approaches to neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Autism, Depression, Multiple Sclerosis, Concussion, Epilepsy etc. Through our grant program, we provide funding for researchers across Canada.

Our vision? A world free from neurological disorders.

We fund research that fits into the rigorous NeuroCAM (Neuroscience + Complementary & Alternative Modalities) criteria.  All research proposals are reviewed by our Scientific Review Panel to ensure it meets the highest quality of research methods and scientific measures. Since 2010, we’ve raised nearly $3 Million for alternative brain research, funded over eighty (80) research projects and have expanded our University Grant Program across Canada.  

We've raised nearly $3 million dollars
towards innovative tech and non-pharma solutions to neurological disorders!
