Complexity Explorer Santa Fe Institute


SFI's online course program is supported by voluntary donations from participants.

Complexity Explorer brings the knowledge and spirit of the complexity science at the Santa Fe Institute to anyone interested in exploring the deeper connections in our world. It’s available to learners everywhere at no cost. But we need your help.

Each new Complexity Explorer course costs $25,000 to create and run, including faculty and staff time, video production, site development, and hosting. Like you, we believe complexity science should be accessible and inclusive. Your support helps build a global community of learners who can take on the challenges we face now, and those we will face tomorrow, using the tools of complexity. That’s a community that benefits us all - including our over 35,000 Complexity Explorer learners.

The Santa Fe Institute is a non-profit research institute, so your donation is fully tax-deductible in the US, and 100% of donations support the development and maintenance of Complexity Explorer. Any amount you can give will be greatly appreciated.
