How We Are Funded

MERF is a non-profit, public benefit corporation qualifying for tax-deductible contributions under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our tax identification number is 94-2788893.

MERF is funded by private donations from small foundations and individuals. Plus, we benefit from volunteer time because the mentors participate in all the activities without honorarium, and all the organizational work and overhead is donated.

Our supporters are persons who have seen first hand the benefit of immersing physicians in this specialized and personalized environment of learning about addiction.

Our budget is modest. We keep expenditures to a minimum. Our fundraising is directed primarily to the individual donor. You can support MERF by spreading the word about our work or with a financial contribution. Use this link and donate now!
