Alcor’s Board and Management recently completed an analysis of the funding arrangements of Alcor’s 944 cryopreservation members as of August, 2011. As a result of many members signing up years ago when costs were lower, there is a large and growing gap between arranged funding and present costs of performing cryopreservation. This gap is projected to grow with time, eventually becoming unmanageable unless steps are taken to address it.
The article Cryopreservation Funding and Inflation contains the results of the recent funding analysis, and proposals for action. Alcor asks that all members and prospective members read this article to understand the impact that underfunding (funding falling below current cryopreservation minimums) may have on their cryopreservation arrangements.
