Minnesota nonprofit to present $250,000 check for brain health patients





Check will be presented to the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain


WHAT: Birdies4Brains, a Minnesota nonprofit dedicated to helping brain injury survivors experiencing financial hardship, will present a $250,000 check to celebrate its partnership with Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain and the establishment of the Birdies4Brains Superhero Fund.


Located in Minneapolis and developed through a partnership between the University of Minnesota and M Health Fairview, the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain (MIDB) is the first-of-its-kind institute dedicated to advance brain health from the earliest stages of development across the lifespan. In February 2021, Birdies4Brains became the first community nonprofit organization to establish a fund to provide financial assistance, resources, and programming to MIDB patients and their families.


To further its commitment to MIDB, Birdies4Brains donated plush birdie toys and copies of the children’s book entitled, A Spectacular Birdie, written by local author Sarah Warren, which are distributed to patients and families visiting MIDB. The book is sold on Amazon and Sarah Warren’s narration of the book is available on YouTube.


Monday’s check presentation to MIDB comes one week before Birdies4Brains’ signature annual 100 Holes fundraising event, where 30+ golfers play 100 holes of golf in one day at Keller Golf Course in Maplewood. This will be the 10th anniversary of that event, which has raised a total of $1 Million throughout its history.
