For the past month Fight Aging!, Jason Hope, and the Methuselah Foundation have been running a 3 to 1 match on up to $15,000 donated to the SENS Research Foundation before the end of the year. The Foundation is perhaps the only organization in the world presently working earnestly and seriously on the scientific foundations needed to produce actual, real, working rejuvenation therapies, piece by piece over the next few decades. The Foundation is very well connected in the research community, funds projects in labs around the world, and the scientific advisory board is made up of well-regarded names from numerous fields in the life sciences and medicine.
It is the grassroots that drives the growth of any organization: the more people that show support the easier it becomes to win large investments from conservative funding sources and philanthropists. Multi-million dollar donations for medical research only happen when thousands of people make it known that this cause is worth it by giving a little each. Thus more money raised and more supporters raising their voices at this comparatively early juncture will lead to accelerating progress over the years ahead, moving us towards the large-scale funding needed for the best practical rate of growth in this field of research. None of us are getting any younger, after all, and time is of the essence.
I'm very pleased to say that even after past months of generous donations to fund a number of projects relating to healthy life extension and research, the community still pulled together to find the full $15,000 in just a few weeks, pulling in the combined $45,000 in matching funds from Fight Aging!, Jason Hope, and the Methuselah Foundation.
But that isn't all: long-time Methuselah Foundation donor Michael Cooper has put up another $15,000 matching fund that has yet to be met. Further donations will be matched by this - so if you are still on the fence or late to the news, here is your chance. This was in the mail today from the SENS Research Foundation staff to announce present success and continued work to meet their original year-end goal of $100,000 put forward in November:
Everyone at SENS Research Foundation would like to thank you for your support of our work to change the way the world researches and treats age-related disease throughout 2013.
We are pleased to announce that your generous contributions have enabled us to fully realize our three matching grants from Jason Hope, the Methuselah Foundation and Fight Aging!.
To add to the good news, we have now received a new matching grant of $15,000 from Michael Cooper. We need your help to match this grant between now and the end of the year. Help us to meet our goal of raising $100,000 by visiting our donate page today. All donations to SENS Research Foundation are tax deductible.
Aging affects us all and the research needed to stop the suffering caused by Alzheimer's, heart disease, cancer, and other age-associated health problems remains in critical need of better funding. Please consider SRF as you choose your charitable contributions this season.
Thank you again for supporting SENS Research Foundation! Have a happy and healthy New Year.
