Welcome to Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc.’s portal for submission of grant and other funding requests. This portal is limited to only certain types of requests and will need different information and documentation to support each type of request. In addition, Catalyst is only able to entertain grant and other funding requests from the United States and its territories at this time.
Charitable and Philanthropic Donation Requests: These are requests for charitable and philanthropic support – typically in disease states in which Catalyst is active either in research or with approved products or in communities in which Catalyst has a strong connection. These requests can only be made by non-profit charitable organizations and will need to be supported by a request letter or proposal outlining the activity to be supported (including dates and locations) and documentation of the requesting entity’s tax status such as an IRS letter or state organizational documents.

Advocacy Requests: Similar but different from Charitable and Philanthropic donations, these are specifically from organizations that advocate on behalf of patient and caregiver groups related to areas in which Catalyst is either active commercially or in research and may involve lobbying and educational efforts. These requests should only be made by advocacy groups and should be supported by a request letter, documentation of the tax i.d. number or other relevant tax registration information of the requesting entity, and any additional documentation detailing the proposed activity.

Meeting Sponsorship Requests: These are requests to provide funding support for upcoming medical, educational, or patient meetings. While these opportunities often come with exhibit space as a benefit of sponsorship, they are distinct from exhibit requests because the provide more prominent name placement for sponsors than exhibitors so that the sponsor is more closely associated with the meeting due to the higher support level. These requests are supported by a request letter, a brochure or other document that outlines the meeting (audience, time, place) and the available sponsorship opportunities, and a W-9 or similar tax document for the requesting entity.

Exhibit Requests:These are requests for Catalyst to obtain exhibit space at upcoming medical and patient conferences in order to present information regarding its activities, the disease states in which it is active, or its products. These requests are distinct from sponsorship requests as Catalyst would only be provided limited space and would only be listed among other similar exhibitors rather than as a supporter in the case of a sponsorship. These requests are supported by a request letter; a brochure or document that explains the meetings purpose and audience, its location and time, and exhibit opportunities; and a W-9 or similar tax document from the requesting entity.

Medical Education Support Requests: These are requests to support medical education activities in or adjacent to the disease areas in which Catalyst is active commercially or in research. They can be for accredited CME activity, graduate medical education, or even unaccredited medical education. These requests are supported by a request letter (that outlines the activity at a high level), a budget that supports the amount requested and makes it clear whether any other supporters are anticipated, a W-9 or other similar tax document for the requesting entity, and a description that provides detail sufficient to the amount requested on the educational need being addressed, specific educational objectives, and whether (and how) achievement of those educational objectives will be assessed.

Investigator Initiated Research Requests: These are requests from potential investigators for Catalyst to fund or otherwise support their own research projects. There is wide latitude in these types of requests as long as they 1) originate outside of Catalyst, 2) are relevant to our products or the patient populations we work with (both commercially and in research), or 3) advance science and understanding in a meaningful way. These requests are typically supported by an outline of the research proposed (even a draft protocol), a budget that supports the amount requested, and a curriculum vitae of the requesting investigator.

Currently, these are the only types of grants and funding requests that Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is supporting through this portal.
