TZM: Official Non-Profit Organization
In June 2016, TZM established a US-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization to help further the goal of public education in regards to what a Natural Law/Resource Based economic model is about, how it works, what the social benefits are, and how to transition from our present socio-economic system to such a model with the least amount of social disruption or inconvenience.
Based in California, and chaired by core members of the Los Angeles Chapter of TZM, this tax exempt entity allows for tax deductible donations.
Allocation of donated funds include: Funding website work, covering administrative and hosting fees; the development and promotion of global event days, such as the Media Festival and Zeitgeist Day; expanding public relations work; along with overall media outreach, including better social networking strategies.
We also seek to create a better communicative infrastructure to help chapters, while ensuring reliable project heads to help guide volunteer actions in large endeavors.
What is the TZM NPO?
This is a legal, non-profit 501(c)3 entity obligated by California law and IRS rules. It operates to help core infrastructure needs that require money, such as websites and main, global events.
Does NPO board receive income?
No. The board members are volunteers, they take no salary.
What is the difference between the NPO and TZM Chapters?
The TZM NPO is an independent legal 501(c)3 entity subject to California law and IRS rules whereas all other TZM advocates and supporters participate independently, as volunteers, either entirely self-directed, or through The Movement’s volunteer chapters.
Does this group oversee the entire movement in the sense of a global governance institution?
No, the grassroots and volunteer nature of TZM remains the same just as before. The NPO simply helps to improve aspects of TZM’s most core structural needs and means of public presentation (i.e. websites, communication platforms, etc) that require ongoing costs to maintain.
