The Long Now Foundation in San Francisco has told us that their and the mission of this project are aligned and have agreed to help the best they can. Mr Buffett’s bet with Protege partners was a project under this foundation. They said that they will let their ~6000 members know of this project and the members can help the project.
Mr. John Rogers’ Foundation which supports financial education for minorities agreed to help as well. They are interested in sending a team to the Research competition.
