How is OWR going to be funded? What’s the money for, and how do I know it’s spent well?

We hope to be funded largely by regular contributions from our members. But we’ll also try to get support from other individual donors and organizations like foundations or unions. The money is used to meet basic operational needs (like printing, travel, and legal and insurance services) and salary and expenses for staff — of which you need some, even in an overwhelmingly volunteer operation, to help in its and their organization. On the second question, financial information (revenue, expenditures, accounts receivable, etc.) is reported very regularly to the board, which is elected by members, and shared with local leadership as well. OWR is a very transparent organization. Whether it’s using its money wisely and well is something that’s easy to find out, but you’ve got to get involved to get all the details.
