Ethos Discovery uses donations and in-kind support from Ethos Veterinary Health, to initiate and launch new scientific projects.
The scientific and philanthropic missions of Ethos Discovery are highly supported by both Ethos Discovery and Ethos Veterinary Health. All the members of the Ethos Discovery Board and Ethos Veterinary Health Executive leadership are individual donors to Ethos Discovery.
- Ethos Veterinary Health supports many of the administrative functions needed to run and 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 to range from $200,000 – $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 being sourced through competitive scientific, and small business grants and philanthropic donations.
Potential donors include private individuals, private foundations, industry-sponsored foundations, and “angel” donors.
