Ethos Discovery uses donations and in-kind support from Ethos Veterinary Health, to initiate and launch new scientific projects.
Ethos Discovery’s scientific and philanthropic missions are highly supported by Ethos Discovery and Ethos Veterinary Health. All Ethos Discovery Board and Ethos Veterinary Health executive leadership members are individual donors to Ethos Discovery.
- Ethos Veterinary Health donations support many of the administrative functions needed to manage Ethos Discovery, including legal, compliance, strategic, administrative, and other operational elements. These in-kind donations are estimated at $1,000,000 per year.
- Donations from Ethos Veterinary Health allow us to apply all other donations directly to our research projects without the need to support administrative, personnel, or overhead costs. As a result, 100% of new donations directly fund Ethos Discovery research.
- Ethos Discovery incorporates these Ethos Vet “seed funds” with additional revenue streams from philanthropic gifts and grants to support scientific research.
We estimate the total budget for each project will range from $200,000 to $1,000,000 per year. Initially, we expect that approximately 30% of a specific project’s funding will come from Ethos Veterinary Health seed-funding, with the remainder sourced through competitive scientific and small business grants, and philanthropic donations.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, Ethos Discovery can receive tax deductible donations from private individuals, foundations, and corporations.
