About the Eric Trump Foundation
Founded in 2006, The Eric Trump Foundation (ETF) is dedicated to raising money for children battling life-threatening diseases at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. To date, the Foundation has donated and pledged nearly $28 million dollars to St. Jude and grown into one of the largest private charities in the country.
Through direct personal involvement and financial assistance, we strive to advance the medical and emotional needs of terminally-ill children and demand that our monetary donations are transformed into real results at St. Jude.
In November 2013, the Foundation announced the construction of The Eric Trump Foundation Surgical and ICU Center, a $20 million dollar state-of-the-art medical center opening in 2015. Last year, The Eric Trump Foundation AMKL Cancer Research Lab, in conjunction with the Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project, made a groundbreaking discovery and identified a critical fusion gene responsible for almost 30% of a rare type of childhood leukemia.
