At this time The Silvio Gesell Foundation is a small, unpaid team. We hope that over time it will develop into a more substantial, professional organization. We have a long list of projects that we plan to pursue as time and resources allow.
Your support can help accelerate this process. We are currently set up to receive financial support in three different ways. One-time donations can be made via PayPal using the address email@example.com. Recurring monthly support can be provided via Patreon by following this link:
And readers of our Substack newsletter can become paid subscribers here:
You can also, of course, mail us a check. Please email us if you wish to do so.
Below you will find a list of projects which we have planned, along with the approximate budgets necessary to accomplish them. If you wish to make a donation which is specifically designated to one of these projects, we would be happy to discuss that with you. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are trying to do nothing less than change the world. Whether you can contribute $5 or $50,000, we appreciate everyone who joins us in building this movement.
Publish a new English language edition of Gesell’s book, The Natural Economic Order. Projected budget: $2,500
Create SGF merchandise. The first batch will consist of stickers, coffee mugs & t-shirts. Projected budget: $500
Hire an on-call translator to increase coordination between the SGF and the Silvio Gesell Institute in Argentina. Our ability to cooperate and collaborate is currently limited due to the language barrier. Projected budget: $300/month
Set up The Silvio Gesell Foundation as an official 501c3 nonprofit organization. Projected budget: $4,500 (We would also gladly accept some pro bono legal services!)
Develop a digital demurrage currency which can be deployed in community-based, local Gesellian initiatives. Projected budget: TBA
Archive, translate and publish the documents currently housed at the Silvio Gesell Museum in Villa Gesell, Argentina. Most of these documents have never been seen by anyone who has not physically visited the museum. Projected budget: TBA
