GIMPS is a victim of its own success! In 2008, after claiming the EFF award for discovery of the first 10 million digit prime, GIMPS had about $25,000 cash on hand to fund the server hardware, ISP fees, and $3000 awards for discovery of new Mersenne primes. Due to the unexpected, but welcome, discovery of 6 new Mersenne primes since 2008, GIMPS now has enough cash to fund just two years of ISP fees (much less if a new Mersenne prime is discovered).
