About the IETS Foundation
In 1989, the Board of Governors of the IETS established the IETS Foundation to ensure that there will be an ongoing source of funds for student travel and fostering high standards of education.
The Foundation is organized exclusively to stimulate research and support youth programs and education in the field of embryo transfer and its associated technologies in related fields of productive physiology and biomedical activity with the overall objectives of
Monies donated in excess of those required to stage the International Embryo Movement Symposium at the World Veterinary Congress in Montreal in 1987 have been used to seed the Foundation with a "quasi endowment". Only income from the endowment can be used. The Foundations Board of Trustees aim to attain donations to support specific educational activities and to increase the principal of the endowment.
Our goal is to increase endowed funds so that annual income would support specific projects and educational programs. The Foundation is developing new interactive educational programs to complement the outstanding success of the Student Research Competition. We hope you will continue to assist us in supporting these programs and aid us in the development of others.
The Foundation is incorporated in the State of Illinois, USA under the provisions of "The General Not For Profit Corporation Act of 1986", and is recognized by the United States Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) foundation. Thus, the Foundation is able to sponsor student travel and educational programs through the income generated from grants and tax deductible contributions.
The IETS Foundation and You
What is mysterious and novel today will be obvious and commonplace tomorrow provided that the research that needs to be done is done. This means that the money and the people to do it have to be there.
