Information for Prospective Donors

The Ingersoll Foundation takes the welfare of children very seriously, and it was our concern for the potentially negative effects of frequent, long-term religious instruction on the minds of children who have not yet developed the skills needed to question the veracity of often-baseless assertions of fact that resulted in the creation of the Foundation. If research provides objective evidence that our concerns are valid, they will likely lead to a broad discussion of the ethics of childhood religious instruction. 

The Foundation is currently in the process if seeking 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, but if you are interested in our work, are considering making a donation after we attain tax exempt status or would simply like to learn more about The Foundation, we urge you to get in touch using the information on our Contact Us page.

Thank you for your interest!
