Wow! MIRI’s donors just finished our 2013 winter matching challenge three weeks ahead of the deadline!
As it happens, the person who finished this drive was Patrick LaVictoire, who says his donation was the product of his altruism tip jar habit.
I did not expect to finish the fundraiser so quickly. Basically, this happened because the 3:1 matching for “new large donors” worked even better than we hoped: this fundraiser brought forth ten “new large donors,” an uncommonly high number.
For those who were wondering whether they should contribute to MIRI or to its child organization CFAR, the answer is now clear: please contribute to CFAR’s ongoing fundraiser.
Many, many thanks to everyone who contributed!
