But then again, all holidays are. This one at least nudges us to think deeply about what we care about and gives us the choice to commit to it by putting our money where our mouth is. If what you care about happens to be the high-level goal of striving for a positive long-term future for life, we hope you commit to supporting us.
We are entirely funded by people like you and we are a small organization so every dollar you commit goes a long way for us. Even more so, because now you have the chance to DOUBLE or even TRIPLE the impact of your donation. Below we explain how, let’s first talk about why:
You increase the likelihood humanity’s our long-term future will be beneficial for life. Please see our Progress Report for an overview of our big wins for 2019 and how you can join our 2020 work to foster foundational research to heal our planet, promote favorable AI outcomes, help the public make sense of new tech and several novel projects.
In addition to allowing enabling Foresight to make faster progress on goals you care about, higher donations trigger higher membership benefits. Here comes the best part: If you give in time for your donation to be doubled by our $45K Challenge Grant, we will use the doubled value of your donation to determine your membership benefits. So by doubling the impact you allow us to have, you get half price on the membership benefits described in detail in the Progress report. In short, this means:
You receive our quarterly update with special opportunities for Foresight members and a priority invitation to our annual Vision Weekend member gathering
You receive priority access to our salons that usually sell-out, and an invitation to the private speaker evening at our annual member gathering
You design a salon with us on your preferred topic, with videos generating 15K+ views
You partner with us on our invitational meetings, such as our Research Competitions or our AI Strategy Meeting, and receive an invitation to the event of your choice.
You can give via Paypal, check, wire or using cryptocurrencies on our donation page or via the Facebook fundraiser. We will automatically count your donation toward the Challenge Grant – as long as it lasts. It’s okay to donate now to secure your membership benefits instead of waiting for Giving Tuesday 🙂
If you like to get the very biggest bang for your bucks, on December 3rd, at 5 am PST, Facebook will match every donation committed through Facebook up to $7M. Last year those donations were used up in under 20 seconds, so you have to move fast. If you can do it for Burning Man tickets, you can do it for the goals you care about!
Please join and share our Facebook Fundraiser, register your preferred payment method with Facebook now and set your alarm to 4:50 am on December 3, so you have enough time to enter your donation and are ready to hit the donate button as the clock strikes 5 am.
Please reach out to us anytime with questions [[email protected]].
Thank you for caring. We hope you join us in making 2020 count.
