We are trying to provide a sustainable funding source for the program

Fundraising from alumni (about 2000 alums) Fundraising from corporations that have a strong interest in mathematics education.

We have a board of active participants some of whom have considerable experience in fundraising. We have the active support of a loyal alumni group and of the founding staff of the program.

1. Raise enough money to subsidize the 2020 summer program - we have just started this in December 2019. 2. Raise money for an endowment - 1.7M is needed for a long term spend down. We have had conversations with alumni who have indicated but not pledge approximately 1/3 of this amount.

Formed institution. Filed with appropriate states and tax authorities Begun fundraising.
