It is official: the Orchestra 990 Database Project Kickstarter campaign is off and running! Between now and Friday, 3/28/2014 we need to generate $40,000 in pledges, it’s going to be crazy exciting and to help get things moving, get psyched up on the project video.
The Kickstarter page has all of the details related to project goals, specific information about what you’re funding, overfunding extras, and an expanded section about the depth of commitment toward the project’s goal of applying open data principles to help bring about a future of empowered fiscal transparency in the nonprofit performing arts community (spoiler: we’ll be forming a L3C to function as the entity under which all work and ongoing administration will be conducted).
Questions? No problem, there are loads of methods to submit queries and learn more and thank you in advance for posting them at the Kickstarter project page via these links:
But most important of all…BECOME A BACKER
Help Spread The Message
The best way to meet the goal in the shortest amount of time is to have everyone pitch in and spread the word. To that end, you can use the Facebook or Twitter share buttons from the project’s Kickstarter page as well as embed the project video or widget via easy to use copy/paste code, like sharing a YouTube Video (visual aid).
Not only will you have my eternal gratitude but you’ll know that you’re contributing to a meaningful project that will help usher in one of the most valuable advancements in fiscal transparency since the IRS made 990s available in pdf format.
So what are you waiting for?
