Different Fund Raising Levels in Brief

$8,000 – 2 km test
$20,000 – better sensors
$30,000 – at least 3 to 5 kilometer
$50,000 – new robot and at least 3 to 5 kilometer
$75,000 – transition from altitude to endurance
$100,000 – back in business for real
$250,000 – try for to climb to the limit of balloon technology , about 20 miles / 30 kilometers

$500,000 – tests with plants and animals at 30 kilometers
$3,000,000 – Full feasibility study and tests

They appear to be solidly on track for over $100,000 and probably about $120,000. A second kickstarter might get them to the $250,000 level.
