As a collective funding mechanism, E-Research Foundation enables the comparatively smaller resources of manufacturers, vendors, consumers, organizations, other foundations, the general public – and even those potentially opposed to the idea of these products – to collectively participate in funding credible and verifiable independent research. ERF is now a fully approved Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. 501(c)(3) entities permit, to the extent of the law, donations to be tax deductible for donors. We encourage all donors to consult their tax professionals to learn about tax deductibility of donations to 501(c)(3) foundations.
All donors have the option to be recognized on this website for their donations. Recognition options allow donors to decide how some information is publicly displayed. Our recognitions options allow donors to choose to display their name or “anonymous”. Business name recognition is optional. At minimum, all “anonymous” donations will display State, Country and amount donated (“Ribbon Levels” where applicable).
Please select the category for your donation below and you will be directed to a page specifically dedicated to your category. These individual category donation pages also provide for donor recognition options.
“All ERF funded studies must pre-qualify with advanced commitment to the process of Peer-review and publication. This ensures all studies will become open source and available to any and all for advancing consumer protections, education, product development, policy and regulation, etc.”
Lou Ritter, ERF President
