Funding Policy

Funding and donation policy

The ERC is an established, 501(c)3 tax-exempt, tax-deductible organization. We are a self-supporting organization, unique in that we operate solely on donations from individuals, organizations and carefully selected, reputable resources that support our mission and share our goals of improving the lives of those with endometriosis – and of ultimately, one day, finding a cure.

We are not an affiliate of and do not endorse any advocate, practitioner, association, group or industry company. We do not offer, and do not accept donations for, physician referrals.
We do not support or endorse any “doctor vetting” programs or “physician lists.”

The ERC has no relationship with, and has never accepted funding of any sort from, the makers of the GnRH agonists and antagonists Orilissa, Lupron, Zoladex or Synarel. The ERC does work with, and will on occasion receive unrestricted educational grants from, respected and ethical healthcare companies 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, group, foundation or individual in any way; rather, we strive to provide unbiased, informative materials based strictly on the latest peer reviewed research findings.

We do not pay salaries. All donations are 100% applied to ERC community programs intended to raise disease awareness and support educational/research endeavors.
