WORLD FUTURE FUND
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE TO OUR WORK
The World Future Fund is certified by the Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit corporation. All contributions are tax deductible.
We have finished grant proposals for foundations and large donors for our two most important programs.
We are preparing formal grant proposals for our other two key programs. Even though we do not have finalized grant proposals for these projects, we do have specific ideas and financial plans here and are ready to discuss these with donors.
IMPORTANT TAX BENEFITS OF CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS
CONTRIBUTIONS OF STOCK
Contributors should be aware of the great tax benefits that can be achieved by the donation of low cost stock. You can take a deduction of the current price of this stock against your total income. By contrast, if you sold it you would have to pay a capital gains tax. We have brokerage accounts with two of America's leading brokers. The donation of stock is simple and can be done very quickly via electronic transfers.
This is a way to lock in profits as well as making a positive charitable contribution.
We urge contributors to consider us in their wills. American estate taxes at higher levels are very punitive. By leaving the money to us, you can invest in the future, rather than simply letting the I.R.S. get your money.
Contributors who wish to be informed about all tax details of contributions should read IRS Form 526 which can be found on the IRS web site. We suggest you check with your financial advisors to learn how your goals in terms of ideas can also make sense in terms of financial planning.
TIMING OF CONTRIBUTIONS
Time is not a friend of today's world. Every day that reforms are not implemented, the cost of reform rises. Indeed, the global problems that we are dealing with are certain to create major global economic crises in the future. Today's high stock prices may not last
Now is a unique opportunity to make an investment in the future.
We are very interested in discussing large contributions with potential supporters. We are also very interested in receiving suggestions. If there are some key issues that you feel we should deal with, please let us know. As you can see, we have a very disciplined and specific plan of future actions. However, the timing of these plans could be influenced by the timing of large contributions.
We are very interested in building a global network of financial backers who share the views that we have presented on the internet.
This organization has evolved from an idea into a reality. You can make a difference. You can be part of a solution to global problems. We do not claim to have all the answers. Nor are we the only solution. However, with your help we can all work together to create solutions. As isolated individuals, our power is limited. By coming together in viable network we can gain power.
World history is not an inevitable force. Where does reform start? It starts with you. Doing something is no guarantee of success. However, it can be scientifically proven that doing nothing in the face of evil is a 100% certain game plan for disaster.
Money is a source of accumulated power. It is a means to an end. We make no apologies for planning a direct and aggressive fund raising campaign. Current world problems need major solutions. We want to build the best. We are committed to the creation of a high quality organization.
In our early years we have a careful, step by step program that will enable us to move forward and create specific achievements as the money comes in. Thus, our plans are not dependent on waiting until huge amounts of money come in.
However, we look to the future with a master plan. Small projects are designed from the start to lay the foundation for larger projects.
If you have taken the time to read this, you clearly have an interest in what we are doing. We suggest that you take the time to call us to see if we can work together in building a safer future for our world.
