Earth Ship is a fairly interesting and novel way to turn corporate sponsorship of this environmental undertaking into an effective tax shelter.
I am of the opinion that in principle, a charitable deduction for the remaining lease value of the Earth Ship could be sustained.
In our view, a charitable contribution should be allowable for a contribution by the taxpayer of a specified temporal portion of the ship’s charter.

We are writing in support of your innovative Earth Ship project to link university students around the world via live video conferencing in order to raise their global warming awareness of the environmental issues facing mankind.
I have strongly supported Earth Ship from the very beginning. The reasoning behind this is that we desperately need your project to help raise the world population’s attention concerning global warming and environmental degradation.
I must tell you how enthusiastic I am about the proposed Earth Ship Program. This is one of the most innovative and exciting projects I have every come across.
You have proposed a very good way of activating thousands of people around the world.
We would be very interested in pursuing (Earth Ship) so we could carry out environmental education and ecotourism programs.
