For most of its more than 25 years of history, SCIRE has relied on 100% sponsor funded research, including federal, state, private, and industry funding.

In these changing times of increasingly intense competition for external funding, we recognize that translating research innovations into health improvements for Veterans is larger, more inter-disciplinary, and requires more specialized infrastructure than traditional grant funding alone can address. To fully realize our purpose, we depend on the support and generosity of individual donors.

As part of expressing our ethical standards, we are committed to our role as stewards of the research funds we are privileged to administer. This includes funds entrusted to us by our donors.

Thank you so very much for considering to give in support of Veterans’ Health. We are committed to make the best use of your donation and treat it as we would if it were our own personal money.

SCIRE is a nonprofit organization designated as tax-exempt under Section 501(c) 3 by the Internal Revenue Service. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Our tax ID is #33-0331855.
