Thank you for visiting The Eric Trump Foundation website.
As Founder and President of this charity, it comes with great sadness to inform you that, effective December 31, 2016, I have decided to cease all direct fundraising efforts of my foundation. While I resigned with a heavy heart, it was a voluntary decision to enact these measures during the tenure of my father’s presidency in order to avoid the appearance or assertion of any impropriety and/or a conflict of interest. Nonetheless, the foundation is being restructured and renamed, and under new leadership, it will continue its mission to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in the fight against pediatric cancer.
I am incredibly proud of the strides that this charity has made in the past 10 years and the $16.3 million we have raised for the children of St. Jude. Moreover, I find solace in knowing that the state-of-the-art Eric Trump Foundation Surgery & ICU Center, which opened in 2014, will continue to save the lives of countless children for many years to come. The friendships I have made will last a lifetime and the brave children I have met will be ingrained in me forever.
St. Jude isn’t just another institution; it is truly the greatest pediatric research hospital in the world. I could not be more proud of all that The Eric Trump Foundation has accomplished since I started this organization at age 21.
I will continue to be the greatest ambassador for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and pediatric cancer until the day we achieve Danny Thomas’ dream, “No Child Should Die in the Dawn of Life.”
Eric F. Trump
