Managing the Growth of Donations
This idea emerged during yesterday’s follow-up conversation of the St. James’s event. It is our way of raising funds for so far unpaid activities – for anybody who comes our way:
- turning charities into ‘social businesses’
- helping philanthropists become ‘social investors’.
Micro-Donations are meant to help people in ‘invisible’, ‘institutionalised’ or ‘mega-poverty’:
- victims of banks, legal processes and other institutions:
- unfair bankruptcies, undue legal costs, unlawful bank charges.
The bank account is the one of the Forum for Stable Currencies. It has been receiving £5 a month from one solid supporter since we set up the Campaign for Interest-Free Money in 1998. Recently, the account was used for registrations at St. James’s.
