Currently, we're self-funded, using our personal savings to be the change we want to see in the world. Donations will allow us to grow and add the features needed to achieve our mission.
Donations are not tax-deductible. We are a California benefit corporation, so our explicit purpose is to benefit society, but we are not a 5013(c), not a charity.
You can donate with lower fees using Dwolla.
Or, donate using Paypal:
Your money goes to PeopleCount, Inc, a California "benefit corporation." A benefit corporation, also called a "B corporation," has a stated purpose of being for the benefit of society. It's not a non-profit corporation, so your donation is not tax-deductible.
Your donations help to cover our costs. Costs include salaries, programming and computing resources, distribution (marketing), and website design and development.
Your donations are not spent on partisan positions. Our purpose is to enable people to govern themselves effectively. We work hard to be strictly non-partisan.
Gaining nonprofit status would impose additional constraints and take time away from launching. Where we’re located, there are abundant resources for corporate startups. As a California B corporation, while not a non-profit, our stated purpose is to benefit society. As a B corporation, we retain the option to become a nonprofit or seek investment capital down the road.
Donations of $50 or more are accepted by check. Mail to:
PeopleCount, Inc, c/o Rand Strauss
1815 Walnut Dr
Mountain View, CA 94040
For smaller donations, if you don't have a credit card, that's okay! You can support us by encouraging your friends and families to register and complete their political profiles.
