2006-2007 Matching Grant a Success

With the help of just 48 Alcor members and supporters, the 2006-2007 Matching Grant for Fracture Free Research & Development is a success. These donations – totaling $29, 321 – will be matched by an additional $25,000 from our anonymous donor, bringing the grand total to $54,321. Contributions will be used to understand and seek ways to prevent damaging fractures in our cryonics patients.

Many donors requested privacy, so we are publicly thanking only those who have given us permission to do so:
