In 2004, a group called The Methuselah 300 was created. Each of these generous individuals have pledged up to $25,000 to help advance the fight against aging. The idea for this group came from the original 300 Spartans who held the pass at Thermopylae in 480 BC against the invading Persian army. Their brave example was a rallying symbol for the people of Greece to continue the fight against the Persian invaders.
Similarly, The Methuselah 300 have stepped forward to serve as the bold few committed to extending healthy life. They enable progress on four fronts:
Venture investments building on past successes (see our progress report), with 100% of returns reinvested into the mission.
Prizes that leverage each dollar up to 16 times at no risk, as there’s no award unless the mission-critical result happens.
Fiscal sponsorship of high-return projects (e.g., SENS, New Organ, Organ Preservation Alliance, and new efforts underway).
Underwriting for scientific research and coordination projects.
The great educational reformer Horace Mann once said we should all “be ashamed to die until we have won some victory for humanity.”
Victory is in sight. The battle awaits.
Join the ranks of the 300 to help make 90 the new 50 by 2030

Our recurring donors are honored in the following list.
The 300 Monument
Just as the original 300 Spartans were later memorialized by a monument at Thermopylae, we have immortalized those who have completed their pledge to the The Methuselah 300 with a beautiful marble monument located on a breathtaking hillside in St. Thomas (U.S.V.I).
In the following video, the founders of the Methuselah Foundation pay tribute to The Methuselah 300 for continued courage and generosity, which fuels real hope for extended healthy human life. We welcome you to join us!
