Where exactly will my money be going?
One of our goals for Think Inclusive is to be as upfront and honest as possible with everyone about where your membership money is going. This is why we would like to share with you the bigger picture and why we wanted to start a subscription website in the first place.
The plan for this website has always been to create an economic engine for writers (self-advocates, educators and parents of children with disabilities) so that they can get a little extra money for what they are passionate about. None of us are trying to get rich here. This is how we see the breakdown of where your membership money will be going.
- 20% will be donated between two non-profits: TASH, an organization that is solely dedicated to the equity, opportunity and inclusion of people with disabilities; and the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN), an organization run by and for Autistic people which focuses on public policy advocacy, community engagement to encourage inclusion and respect for neurodiversity, quality of life oriented research, and the development of Autistic cultural activities.
- 40% will go toward paying our staff (writers, an editor, media producer, and webmaster)
- 20% will go toward future developments (equipment, hardware, software, licensing, etc.)
- 20% will go toward site maintenance (web-hosting, domain names, and technical support)
