BENEFITING: ERIC F TRUMP FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
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.
By using only Trump owned and operated facilities, full-time volunteers, donated food/beverage product & pro-bono celebrity performers, The Eric Trump Foundation maintains one of the lowest expense ratios of any charity in the world.
We insist that St. Jude receives nearly all of the monies raised each year and nothing is expended on unnecessary overhead and salaries.
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 at St. Jude 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.
Each year, The Eric Trump Foundation hosts several golf tournaments across the country to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at our exclusive Trump Golf Clubs in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., and Miami.
Our main fundraiser is held every September at Trump National Golf Club, Westchester, NY,and raises nearly $2 million dollars for St. Jude in one evening. Past hosts have included Jimmy Fallon, Bret Michaels, Lisa Lampanelli and John Rich.
The Foundation has also raised nearly $500,000 for St. Jude from a permanent Charitybuzz online auction, which regularly offers such items as "Spend the Entire Day with President Bill Clinton" and "Sit in Derek Jeter's Personal Seats at a New York Yankees Game and Meet the Future Hall of Famer.” All items are 100% donated for auction.
