The EHERCC is delighted to be able to confirm the news from the EHE Foundation that three major gifts in support of EHE research have been received in the USA:
- $1 million grant to Dr Rubin from the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation;
- $1 million grant in matched funding also from the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation.
- $1 million grant from a private donor to set up an EHE Centre of Excellence at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York.
Any one of these is unbelievable for EHE research and advancing our goals, but to get all three is amazing.
The EHE foundations are now focusing on the matched funding gift. The Petersen Foundation will match up to $1 million that the EHE Group can raise worldwide, over the next three years. That means that every pound, euro or dollar we raise will be matched by the same donation from the Petersen Foundation. So for the next three years every pound raised is worth 2!!
We hope that this wonderful give and huge incentive will spur our supporters on to even greater fundraising achievements.
