We are a 501 c3 tax exempt non-profit science corporation. We established this status due to the fact that we are giving everything we have back to the community as fast and as accurate as possible. It’s a huge task, but with the right people and the support from the community, we’re making it happen! Once we get 10,000 patrons signed up on our Patreon crowdfunding page, we will be creating and supplying all of our explorers with their own personal MagmaChem Explorer Kit. It’s yours to keep, now take all your friends and family outdoors and explore the world!
