We invite you to join us as a member by making a financial contribution. Your financial donation will help us identify and reach the scientists, engineers and innovators who will compete to win the $1 million prize and discover a safe, affordable, effective and scalable breakthrough material or process that allows artisanal gold miners to end their use of mercury once and for all. All members will be acknowledged on our website, invited to member-only calls and networking opportunities, and receive physical and digital materials to share with your networks, customers and communities. 

With your membership donation, you will receive a confirmation email acknowledging your gift. Your contribution supports our bold, innovative, prize-driven initiative to reach and inspire scientists and engineers around the world to discover a benign, affordable, highly efficient, scalable replacement for mercury in artisanal mining.

Together, we are contributing to the quality of life of all living beings. 

Thank you!
