About Freedom of Form Foundation
Whether you're excited by the idea of relatively small, novel cosmetic changes such as dynamic tattoos or exotic ears, or driven by the thought of having a tail and paws, or anything in-between, we're here for you. You have the right to be who you want to be.
We have been reaching out to leaders such as Anders Sandberg at Oxford, Liz Parrish at BioViva, and Hugh Herr at MIT. We're building bridges with our friends at The Tail Company and The Futurist Foundation. Our researchers are creating a dynamic engine for modeling the variability of bones and muscles in 3D, and deeply analyzing the physiology and cell signaling mechanisms used in the integument (i.e., skin, fur, and scales). And, most of all, our welcoming, supportive community of passionate individuals of all backgrounds inspires us to keep going, keep growing, and overcome anything in our way.
We are well underway, and we'd love it if you join us on this journey! With your help, we can all help make the world a better and more accepting place. And, as a special way of saying thank you, we’ll provide the following rewards for patrons:
- "Huh, cool!" – Get early access to our newsletter, where we'll keep you up to date with relevant articles, interviews, and opinions. And that includes updates on our research as well!
- Interested – Gain access to an exclusive channel of our Discord, and join a community of people who are just as enthusiastic about the future as you are. Gain exclusive access to our new podcasts before they're posted anywhere else. Plus, all the bonuses of the previous tier!
- Enthralled – Get a coffee mug, as well as all previous tier bonuses.
- Trailblazer – In addition to the above, get a t-shirt, and recognition of your contribution on our website!
- Visionary – Get a t-shirt, handbag, and coffee mug. More visible recognition of your contribution on our website!
All Discord-based rewards are contingent on entry. Patreon support is welcome, but not required to participate in most areas of our Discord server. Must be 18 years or older to be invited to Discord. Please go to https://freedomofform.org/involvement/discord-server-about/ for further details and to fill out the submission form.
We cannot promise instant or rapid results – science and translation to applications take a long time. As with any area of research, many individual projects will fail before giving useful outcomes. The most important goal of this work is to get the conversation started, inside and outside technical fields, and inspire people across any and all backgrounds.
Together, we can make the phrase “be what you want to be” a reality.
Our FEIN is 824415111. That number may be useful to you when reporting your contributions, and please also remember that the value of any thank-you rewards should not be included in that total. Feel free to ask us if you have any questions about this – we can’t offer tax advice but we’ll do our best to provide as much clarity as we can. If in doubt, seek the help of a tax professional.

This funding level will help accelerate a virtuous cycle that lets us do more research and advocacy, earn the respect of more people, and pursue even more research and advocacy.
Our major donors will continue paying for most or all overhead expenses. By supporting us on Patreon, you’re directly making our program activities possible!
