I would never give to this organization. They have been trying to restore a dome (originally designed for its ease of assembly) for over 10 years. They function as an insiders group and refuse to make basic information public because they don't want people to know they are taking money for restoration and spending it on side projects that please the founding board member. They have literally spent more money NOT restoring the dome than actually doing the work they are taking peoples money for .. it's sad.
