As we complete our second decade at Long Now, we are building a fund to establish our long-term future.
Your tax-deductible donation to The Long Now Foundation this year will be the very first step to seed the Fund of the Long Now. We will leverage this fund, through centuries of interest and investments, to help make Long Now a truly long-term institution.
We need to reach $500,000 in order to put the fund into active management, and to generate sufficient returns to support Long Now's activities and programming. Please join this year's group of visionary donors in creating a truly long-term future through Long Now.

The Long Now Foundation is a nonprofit organization that relies on private gifts and grants to fund its projects and programs. Every gift is important to us and helps make possible the creation of the 10,000-Year Clock, the formation of a 10,000-Year Library, and the knowledge-sharing work we do.

Clock Interest List

The full scale 10,000 Year Clock is now under construction. While there is no completion date scheduled, we do plan to open it to the public once it is ready.
