2023 Overview and Direction

The direction for 2023 is to build the Art of Giving Foundation as a profitable non-profit business.  It is our goal to fund all current programs as well as pay the board of directors for their efforts through a percentage raised. The annual goal to raise is $160,000 with a 25% commission to all Executive Board members split evenly.  For payments to the Executive Board to be paid out at the end of each quarter, all Board Members and their respective Associate Boards must reach or exceed their goal.  Money does not roll over into future months. Bonuses are paid within 14 days of the last day of the quarter.

If there is anyone that wants to take on  more than one board position, you will be eligible for the commission of both positions. I.e. 25% of $160,000 / 7 = $5,714.  If someone takes on two roles they receive $5,714 X 2 roles = $11,428.
