Help me raise money to buy Nikola Tesla's old laboratory

I'm starting a campaign to try and raise enough money to buy Nikola Tesla's old laboratory, the Wardenclyffe Tower.

FAQ (read this before emailing us)

  • Why not Kickstarter?
    Two reasons: 1. Kickstarter doesn't allow charities 2. Indiegogo was wonderful to work with during my last fundraiser so I decided to stick with them.
  • What happens if we don't raise the entire $850,000?
    The Indiegogo campaign is set up as a flexible funding campaign, so no matter how much we raise it will still go to the non-profit and toward making an offer on the property. $1.6M is the asking price, but we're hoping to buy it for less and then use the remainder of the money renovating the property.
  • What happens if we raise more than we need, or if you make a lower bid on the property and there's money left over?
    Any money left over will be spent renovating the property and put toward turning it into a Tesla Museum.
  • If this is a success, can you build a museum right away? What happens next?
    The property the laboratory is on is a bit of mess. It needs to be cleaned up, restored, and there's a ton of work to be done to actually turn this into something worthy of Tesla's legacy. The money we're raising is simply to secure the property so no one can ever mess with it and guarantee that it's a historic site. It opens up years and years of time to figure out how to build a proper Nikola Tesla museum.
    However, I would love to have some kind of Nikola Tesla festival on the property on July 10th of 2013 (Nikola Tesla Day), and have some kind of zany Tesla-coil-BBQ-cookout.
  • Who is handling the money?
    The Indiegogo campaign is linked directly to the bank account of Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, formerly known as Friends of Science East, Inc. It is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization registered with the State of New York. You can read more about them and their board of directors here: Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe.

    You can donate on this Indiegogo page.
