Sponsors

FERN Sponsors
The following distinguished advocates of foresight education and research have donated to support FERN projects. We sincerely thank them for their passion, vision and devotion to the cause of foresight advancement.

There are three ways to sponsor FERN activities, our Foundation FundGeneral Fund and Conference Sponsorship.

FERN Foundation Fund
One way to contribute is to the FERN Foundation Fund, which provides perennial support for the organization. Only 80% of the interest from foundation funds can be spent every year, thus ensuring financial support for our mission continually grows with time. 
FERN uses a version of the permanent portfolio investment strategy to maximize long-term return. See Permanent Portfolio – Historical Returns for the long-term performance record of this conservative investment strategy.
