Our journey began before member #1
We began this exciting journey with the generous support of our individual Founders who have donated exactly $1,000 each. We have decided to treat any individual’s support of more than $1,000 as an interest-free loan which will be repaid to them once our financial resources will allow it. We have further decided to limit the amount of such loans to a maximum of $9,000 per person.
These decisions were made early in our formation so that We The People would never be influenced by large cash donors or other types of benefactors. The organization will not take any free goods, services or cash donations from any corporation, under any circumstances, and pays the then prevailing rates for all outside products and services it procures. We are still accepting funds from new Founders up to a maximum number of 250 so please click here to let us know are interested.
We The People is committed to transparency in all of our finances and will make our quarterly financial reports available to our members and the public.
What do we do with the funds we collect?
Each of our members pays $9.95 per month to our 501(c)4 nonprofit. We hope to attract as many as 2 million members over time. What will we do with all that money? The answer depends on how many members we have at any given time.
