For gifts or donations there must be a letter from the donor indicating that the funding is a gift to be used by the designated beneficiary in support of various research or education activities. Further, the letter should indicate that the gift is irrevocable and imposes no contractual requirement of PAIRE beyond reporting of research results. Alternatively, if the gift or donation is unrestricted as to use, there must be a letter stating this.

Letters accompanying donations from companies must be on company letterhead.

A Sample Donor Letter may be downloaded and edited as needed.

Collaborative Research
Collaborative research with other entities such as universities and pharmaceutical companies requires a contract or research agreement, signed by PAIRE's Executive Director.

Because PAIRE administers VA Research our contracts and agreements are typically sent to VA attorneys for review and negotiation. Please send a draft agreement, preferably electronically, before sending originals for execution.

For more information about research agreements with nonprofit corporations affiliated with VA facilities please see the For Clinical Research Sponsors page on the website of the National Association of Veterans' Research and Education Foundations (NAVREF).
