Over 33,000  people from 108 countries contributed to the success of the campaign,  which reached the $1 million mark in just over a week.

"This is a major milestone in our almost two-decade effort to save  this historically and scientifically significant site. We have been  pursuing this dream with confidence that we would eventually succeed,"
said Gene Genova, Vice President of the organization. "We are very  excited to be able to finally set foot on the grounds where Tesla  walked and worked."

science learning center and museum worthy of Tesla and his legacy. We  invite everyone who believes in science education and in recognizing  Tesla for his many contributions to society to join in helping to make  this dream a reality."
 The organization plans several fundraising events in the future. More   information can be found on the website:,  at the Facebook page (Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe), and via  Twitter @teslascience
