Marsdrive Officially a non-profit

In the last week Marsdrive received official IRS confirmation stating that effective from January 24th 2007 Marsdrive has been granted tax exempt status under 501 (c) 3. This means that any donations to Marsdrive are fully tax deductible from this date. This process has taken a while in coming but it confirms that we are here to stay and that we are making progress as a real organization.

We would like to thank all of our members and supporters who have made this step possible and for your dedication and determination to follow your dreams. In the coming days we will also have major announcements on our new membership structure, details on how we intend to grow and more importantly information that lays out how our members are eligible for grants, scholarships and more. The drive to Mars involves many steps from legal matters to flight hardware development and with your support we know that Mars is achievable "within our reach- within our lifetimes.

If you would like to join Marsdrive at this stage simply click on the Paypal button. More details on membership prices and levels are available on the Founders Circle page.
