Hello, I’d like to open us up to continue a bit on what we were talking about on here: How do I make a donation? about how to make a donation.
The problem that @JoshData said was that we don’t have a plan on how to spend donations, and I agree with him. Non-profit and not-for-profit causes SHOULD have a structure that is agreed to be fair, for spending money.
So we should answer these questions:
who spends the money?
Who keeps/maintains the money (treasury)?
Who decides to spend the money?
What do we spend the money on?
How much money do we spend on each item?
How do we keep the process transparent?
Is it worth establishing a legal entity for Mail-in-a-Box?
Can we accept online identities (i.e. nicknames), or do we need legal documents to prove people’s real-life identities that will be working with Mail-in-a-Box’s money (i.e. board members)?
Who will maintain such records, if records are to be kept?
