The OpenScience Project was seeded with a generous donation from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The interactive features of the site (Forums, comments, the daily weblog) were enabled with a private donation from Ed Richley.
The OpenScience project continues largely as a volunteer effort of the community. We do need to upgrade hardware from time to time and to pay our undergraduates enough to abandon other less fulfilling work-study positions. Donations are always appreciated and may be sent to:
University of Notre Dame
Department of Development
1100 Grace Hall
Notre Dame, IN 46556
Online donations can be made at http://donate.nd.edu
For both online and mailed donations, please designate your gift to "The OpenScience Project" under the direction of Professor Gezelter in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry. (Gift designation can be done in the comments box in the online form.)
