The Foundation is committed to providing reliable information about paranormal claims. It both supports and conducts original research into such claims.
At JREF, we offer a one-million-dollar prize to anyone who can show, under
proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or
occult power or event. The JREF does not involve itself in the
testing procedure, other than helping to design the protocol and approving
the conditions under which a test will take place. All tests are designed
with the participation and approval of the applicant. In most cases, the
applicant will be asked to perform a relatively simple preliminary test of
the claim, which if successful, will be followed by the formal test.
Preliminary tests are usually conducted by associates of the JREF at the
site where the applicant lives. Upon success in the preliminary testing
process, the "applicant" becomes a "claimant."
To date, no one has ever passed the preliminary tests.
