Funding Policy

Overview of the ERC’s corporate funding and donation policy

The ERC is an established, 501(c)3 tax-exempt, tax-deductible organization. We are a fully self-supporting organization, unique in that we operate solely on donations from individuals, organizations and carefully selected, reputable companies, practitioners and resources which support our mission and share our goals of improving the lives of those with endometriosis – and of ultimately, one day, finding a cure. We do not have any practitioner, industry, device company, pharmaceutical, individual, association or political ties.

Furthermore, unlike other endometriosis organizations, we do not accept funding from GnRH-agonist manufacturers nor do we accept donations from physicians in exchange for providing referrals to the global community.  To be certain, the ERC has no relationship with, and has never accepted funding of any sort from, the makers of the GnRH agonists Lupron, Zoladex or Synarel.

The ERC does work with, and will on occasion receive unrestricted educational grants from, respected healthcare companies, physicians, and research sites; however, since our inception, we have always maintained a clear and steadfast position that such donations, if and when they occur, do not obligate or influence the ERC in any way.

As always, we do not recommend or endorse any practitioner, company, organization or individual in any way; rather, we strive to provide unbiased, informative materials based strictly on the latest peer reviewed research findings.
