The Direct Selling Education Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that relies completely on the donations and services of like-minded people to bring our mission to life. For direct selling companies, DSEF is a separate foundation to be supported, not an organization to be a part of (like the Direct Selling Association). For this reason, there are no set dues associated with DSEF. Funding is provided completely by companies and individuals who simply believe in the work of the Foundation and want to see it continue.

Contribute/Pledge as a Company

DSEF is completely funded by people and organizations who support the Foundation’s mission. The vast majority of our contributions come from direct selling companies who want to promote the education of students and the public an accurate understanding of direct selling. Funding of DSEF is completely independent of the Direct Selling Association, and both member and non-member companies alike can contribute to DSEF. Many supplier member companies also contribute to DSEF (as you can see in our Red Ribbon Contributor Recognition).

Donor Recognition

DSEF can do nothing without the support of its donors. So we recognize those who invest in our mission often and prominently. Browse through the recognition of our donors now.

Contribute as an Individual

Many individual executives and corporate members of direct selling companies and supplier member companies choose to make a personal donation above and beyond (or maybe instead of) the contribution of their company. The Foundation thrives on how many people and companies donated to DSEF, no matter what the level of contribution is. These individual contributions help DSEF in so many ways, and we welcome your individual contribution.

Circle of Honor

Created in 1988, the Circle of Honor recognizes industry leaders, academics, and consumer advocates, who made extraordinary contributions to the foundation through personal efforts, involvement, and commitment to the mission and purpose of DSEF.
