LongeCity does not make a lot of money, but through donations and advertising we take in more than our modest running costs. Of course we don't want to keep this surplus idle but spend it on our mission!
Each year, we draw up a 'spending plan' -our budget- that charts what we aim to spend money on.
In 2012, we had ambitious plans to spend an (for LongeCity) unprecedented amount of money - and we failed miserably! One factor was that we were hoping to support -as in previous years- a major scientific research project. Unfortunately, no proposal of significant caliber was received. Also, take-up of our small grants scheme was very slow. Unfortunately, spending money is not as easy as it sounds.
It's a nice problem to have, but clearly, we have to do better in 2013. So, with some cash reserves in hand, the question leadership is deliberating these days is how we can draft a sensible and responsible budget for 2013 that we can actually administer and that achieves maximum benefit for our common cause.
This month two great audio podcasts interviews with:
o- Dr. Marios Kyriazis - an experienced biogerontologist and life extension veteran on anti-aging lifestyle and strategy.
o-Dr. Bill Andrews - President and CEO of Sierra Sciences on telomerase induction technology
