Help Restore the Furthur Bus
And of course, share, share, share!!!
To all those who helped the Furthur Down the Road Foundation reach our seed-funding goal of $10,000, thank you so much. This money will help us build furthurdowntheroad.org (slated for a June launch) and cover our initial startup costs, like incorporation fees and IRS tax-exempt filing fees.
Of course this is only the beginning. We're going FURTHUR, and immediately transitioning into the next stage of this exciting project. With the help of our new website and a team of dedicated volunteers and professionals, we'll soon begin more intensive outreach efforts to educate people about the bus and to seek additional donations. Ongoing funding campaigns will work toward funding the actual restoration, ongoing operations of the Foundation, and the creation of an endowment to ensure Furthur Down the Road is around to share the Furthur bus's magic with generations to come.
We're so grateful for your generous support. If you'd like to give more, you can still do that here. Please continue to spread the word and watch for more news about our journey down the road to restoring this amazing rolling work of art.
Again, congratulations on creating the Foundation and making this dream have a chance at reality. WAY TO GO STEPHANIE
It would be unconciable to allow The Furthur Bus to continue falling into decrepitude. You see folks restoring this and restoring that, but Further stands for So Much for So Many... So many roads, fueled by Electric Kool-Aid, with Cowboy Neil at the wheel... The journey itself being the destination... I'm So glad to see you guys are restoring Further! I'll do whatever I can to help. Namaste!
Erm, please may I drive it to Burning Man? This is so lovely. I can't wait to see it all shiny and new again.
one word: Smithsonian
This is soooo awesome. Such a seminal book. Loved it.

WAY TO GO STEF!
Any chance of the bus getting donated to the Grateful Dead Archives at UCSC or somewhere like that? Where will it be once it's restored?
Oh man! What a great idea, Zane! Once it's all fixed up...feel free to come by the northeast and pick up my boyfriend and I. Hell...we'll even meet you in Millbrook if necessary!
Hey, look, everyone. We made the news! Please share this story with your friends: https://www.examiner.com/article/plans-underway-to-restore-merry-prankster-s-bus-furthur-to-original-condition
Woohoo! Just passed the $1000 mark at roughly the 24 hour mark. Thank you everyone. Keep spreading the word.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE HELPING--- Keep in mind that the Kesey's are donating the bus to YOU, the people. The Furthur Down The Road Foundation will OWN the bus...no money is going to the Kesey's! It is up to the PEOPLE to raise the money and take care of this "Icon of History"!
