The catch is that the experiment is being funded through donations since more traditional sources (e.g., NASA, DARPA, other grant sources) declined to fund the experiment.
"The University of Washington has set up a special account to which individuals or groups can contribute funds for John Cramer's experiment.
Tax-deductible contributions to the project may be made by contacting Jennifer Raines, UW Department of Physics, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailing a check made out to the University of Washington with a notation on the check directing deposit to the account for "Non-Local Quantum Communication Experiment" to:
