To Our Supporters

At the Inflammation Research Foundation we are doing something that has never been done before, and we want you to become part of the story. Join us and help change the world.

The Inflammation Research Foundation (IRF) funds clinical research to demonstrate the ability of anti-inflammatory nutrition to reduce the rising economic burden of chronic disease. We are leading the way with clinical research that the government or private foundations are unwilling to fund. We have accomplished much to date, but we need your help to go further.

The IRF is a Massachusetts nonprofit public benefit corporation (EIN 41-6518089) and a recognized entity that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the International Revenue Code since 2003. Online donations acknowledge that the donor has imposed no restrictions on IRF use of such gifted funds, and that IRF provided no goods or services in return for the donation. 100% of all donations go to clinical research since its founder, Dr. Barry Sears, covers the overhead of the IRF.
