$150,000.00 from more than 2000 contributors. Also sponsors and awards the
annual Donald E. Keyhoe Journalism Award."
The Fund sponsors such projects the release of U.S.
Government documents concerning UFOs under the Freedom of Informatioon
Act,computer-aided analysis of UFO photographs, research into major UFO
sightings around the world,
research into "Operation Majestic 12", psychological testing of people who
