Charles H.


The Dr. Charles H. Best Foundation is a Canadian registered charity whose purpose is to receive donations and financially support research work in The Donnelly Centre at the University of Toronto. We carry on the spirit of the young Charles Best by supporting researchers at the beginning of their professional careers.

We welcome donations from people who want to help us launch the next generation of young scientists, many of whom will become leaders of the future.

All Foundation Board members donate their time, expertise and efforts. With only the minimum of professional support to fulfill legal requirements, the Foundationís operating costs are kept to a minimum.
