peoples-fund-logo THE PEOPLES FUND TO CHANGE THE PLANET: SUBMIT YOUR BUDGETS FOR FUNDING BY DECEMBER 9TH

The People’s Fund to Change the Planet is intended to be the biggest crowdfunding campaign in history.  For a full overview of the fund please click here. The intent is to raise one billion dollars over the next year to fund:

1)      One Law Project that is well organized and enforceable, to enable the reclamation of inherent sovereignty.

2)      One ground breaking Free Energy Project for home use to be distributed directly to the people.

3)      One ground breaking Free Energy Project for personal transportation to be distributed directly to the people.

4)      Two healing modality projects to cure multitudes of people from terminal illness and provide public testimonies.

5)      Seed funding for intentional self-sustaining community models that are non-discriminating and easy to replicate.

6)      Support for the operating expenses of service administrators who will organize and distribute the fund.

7)      Support for the operating expenses of key figures in the alternative community who will promote the fund.

8)      One consensus decision-making software project in a secure environment of transparent integrity that provides a means for the people’s voices to be part of the decisions that affect them.

This fund will be promoted by up to 100 key figures in the alternative media community on internet radio shows, websites, blogs, social media and alternative TV stations.

How will the funds be collected?

All donations will be made through a crowdfunding platform that accepts paypal and credit cards. The funds will then be transferred from the crowdfunding platform and paypal into the bank account of The Peoples Fund Administrative Team which is part of the Fix the World/ World Harmony Foundation Unincorporated Association based out of Australia. This Association with global reach was originally founded 20 years ago and has tax exempt status, donations however will not be tax deductible.

How will the funds be distributed?

Funds will be distributed to selected fund recipients on a monthly basis through a disbursement formula process. Crowdfunding donations are unpredictable in both amounts and timing. Essentially we had to figure out a way to split an unpredictable amount of monthly income between 100 media recipients and 5-10 major projects, all of whom had different needs.  To do this we created a disbursement formula that took into account:

-110 Media monthly Operating Budgets of all different amounts
-10 Project budgets of all different amounts
-Minimum and maximum monthly amount needed by each fund recipient to perform defined work.
-Dividing projects into three phases each with a lump sum amount needed and defined work to be completed per phase.
-Up to 12% in crowdfunding platform and credit card processing fees taken from all donations.
-Assigning a Fixed disbursement % of a billion dollars to each budget
-Assuming up to half of all budgets will be received by the first submission deadline and then the rest of all budgets will be received by a second deadline 3 months later without effecting the disbursement % of the first wave of budgets.
-Ensuring that all donations are disbursed as immediately as possible to meet minimum funding requirements and lump sums towards project phases. We don’t want any money sitting in the bank when it can be used to implement the work.

We are in the process of creating a spreadsheet to test the disbursement formula and display the logic used and potential outcomes. This disbursement formula mock exercise spreadsheet will be available here in the next couple of days.

How will the funds be audited?

All budgets and work performance agreements for each fund recipient will be transparently published on the fixtheworldproject.org website in The Peoples Fund section.

Each fund recipient will be required to submit a simple media operating budget self-auditing form at the end of each month that shows work that was completed using funds that were received. In the event that agreed upon work was not completed or funding milestones where not, met The Peoples Fund Administrative Team will hold a meeting with the fund recipient to establish a contingency plan or conclude the agreement.

A monthly summary report will be published on The Peoples Fund to Change the Planet website so the people can see the progress of the campaign and the use of the funds. This report will also be sent to all individuals who donated to the campaign.
