Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the continued support of our members, The Seasteading Institute met its $250,000 match challenge goal for 2010! Many of you donated at the last minute to help push us toward the finish line, and we want to thank everyone who helped us.
When the ball drops at midnight tonight, December 31st, it will not only close out the year, but mark the deadline for the Thiel Foundation’s $250,000 matching grant.
Meeting this goal would be a huge accomplishment for the young seasteading movement.
We’re launching our 2010 end-of-year fundraising drive to help us meet the Thiel Foundation’s $250,000 matching grant by December 31st. Please help us reach our goal! Below is the fundraising letter we’ve sent to seasteading supporters.
This is sort of a mini-newsletter, since this is a busy time of year for us I wanted to give you some updates.
Since opening registration last week, we’ve had conference signups from as far away as Germany.
As requested by several community members, TSI is pleased to offer the opportunity to [donate directly to specific projects](http://www.seasteading.org/votewithyourwallet), each of which will help us answer an important open question about how best to make seasteading a reality.
