Campaign Complete!

December 23, 2018

Hello Future Fuelers,

 

Our campaign has ended, and we are wrapping up and sending out thank you gifts to you all - so keep an eye out! Though our work on this campaign is coming to a close, our work on the reactor is just beginning. With the funding that you all have provided us, we have been able to start buying components and assembling the reactor. Thank you for all your help in getting us here!

The Final Stretch!

November 27, 2018

Hello Future Fuelers!

 

We are nearing the end of our campaign, and with only three days left, we have raised 48% of our goal. This is the final push! We need this funding to create our functional example of sustainability and what students at Cal Poly can accomplish with a dream, drive, and of course, support from our friends, family, and communities. Now is the time to donate and share our mission with your networks via email, Facebook and anything else, we need all the help we can get!

Halfway Through the Campaign!

November 13, 2018

Hello Future Fuelers!

 

Oh how time flies! We are already almost halfway done with our funding initiative, and we would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has already donated and shared our project. Your support is key to our initiative. Without you, we would not be able to take these steps towards sustainability and set an example for campus and community. 

 

In the meantime, project lead Connor Bush has been further refining our SolidWorks designs and sourcing materials and supplies. We will have some more exciting updates coming soon. For now, please keep sharing our page with your friends, family, and anyone else you know! Every time you share this, we get closer to our goal!

Thank you for your support!

Hello all donors and potential donors! We at Cal Poly Future Fuels wanted to thank you for taking a look into our page and what our project is about. This funding will help us complete the reactor and start making biodiesel (and a difference), much sooner. The more people who see this page and learn about us, the better our chances of making a difference are. So if you know anyone who is interested in biofuels or taking steps for a better world, send them the link to this page or send their contact information to nlatzpc@hotmail.com and we can reach out! In the meantime, Project Lead Connor Bush has been hard at work in the planning phase and getting the minute details settled.
