The NEW worldwide ADHD Fund** initiative enables the public to fund ADHD research.
THE PUBLIC chooses topics to be researched.
RESEARCHERS present proposals for Board Review.
Board Approved proposals are crowd-funded and completed.
Sandra Kooij, MD, PhD, Founder of ADHD Fund, explains the Initiative from The Netherlands:

How it works
- In a short online video the researchers explain the purpose of their research and its significance for people with ADHD.
- If the research appeals to you, you can donate directly to this research.
- For every research project, the collected sum is shown, as well as the target amount of money, and the time left to reach this goal.
- If the proposal does not reach its budget in time, the project is not funded.
- In case the study is not completely funded, your contribution may, according to your wishes, be donated to another study or to ADHDFund.
**ADHD Fund is a separate organization from ADHD in Adults and is solely responsible for its projects and fiscal management.
