Eric Trump Foundation
Eric Trump founded The Eric Trump Foundation in 2006. The foundation's site states its mission as, "raising money for children battling life-threatening diseases at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital."
Eric Trump has repeatedly overstated the foundation's size. In 2015, he said his group was "one of the largest foundations anywhere in the country, anywhere in the world", but the foundation is a small- to medium-sized charity. (Source: Associated Press) The foundation's site boasts of $30 million pledged for St. Jude, but that figure includes future donations to the hospital, not donations to date. The same AP article indicates that the foundation has raised $7.3 million. A New York Times article states that the charity raises, "about $5 million a year." St. Jude Children's Research Hospital confirmed in January 2017 that Eric Trump had donated $16.3 million over the past decade.
