We are an educational non-profit 501(c)(3). We offer everything we do in the spirit of generosity, freely giving what we create to all who wants or needs it. Because of this we are only able to fulfill our mission with the support of generosity of donations. If you would like to make a one-time or recurring donation, you may do so clicking the button below.

Our current fundraising needs are:

  • 12 months of basic software needs, $60/month ($720/year)
  • Aquire a Kindful account to empower us to do more substantive fundraising, $120/month ($1200/year)
  • Accounting services for bookkeeping and accounting, $1500 for the year.
  • Basic, low-hour administrative position to manage the foundation. $500/month ($6000/year)

In total are hopes are to raise money to cover 12 months of our basic operating needs above, which total $9420.

Beyond our basic needs listed above, our fundraising goals are to raise enough donations to support the list of translation projects we have lined up for this year. While we do this work freely, the financial support allows us to pay translators to dedicate more of their time. Our initial goal would be $15,000 for 12 months, allowing for 40-60 dedicated translation hours/month.

In total, with our base operating needs + our translation goals for the next 12 months, our fundraising goal is $24,420.

(we can also accept cryptocurrency as donations)
