Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a non-profit?
WeSearch is not currently a non-profit. WeSearch is in the process of applying for tax exemption.
How do you know the research group is real and not a scam?
WeSearch verifies all interested research groups using the same information as the government. Any group applying for a government grant must prove its legitimacy by providing a Dun & Bradstreet number. We also contact the department head or research director and work with them in verifying any researcher.
How do you get the money to the research group?
WeSearch will transfer donations by either bank account or check, as preferred by the researcher.
What if the research group doesn’t raise enough to complete a project?
Labs can still use the money constructively, even if WeSearch donations alone don’t cover the expenses. Groups will be able to apply for smaller grants to meet expenses or work with suppliers to lower costs. Plus, donations come in every day, and eventually the group will have enough funds.
