Thumbs up Question regarding donations

I have been visiting this site since last month and love reading some great posts from users. I would like to contribute to the forum. I have some questions:

1. Is there any link which i can see the breakdown regarding how contribution of money is being utilized. I want to get the idea regarding what lobby firms we are paying and how much . Also, how much is being used in miscellaneous expenses [ex. maintaining the website, public relation activities etc.]

2. I understand that there must be some core group responsible for handling the expenses. How many members are part of this core group and who they are.

I Apologize, if any of the above questions are inappropriate and hurt some body - because no harm is intended.

On the light side, i see some of donors bragging about the donations they make [only few - most are great guys and gals who i see are very considerate towards helping out each other]. Shouldn't such bragging be discouraged.

Thank you for reading and Good luck to all!

Default Donor Status: Neighbors envy, Donors pride

I believe "donating for some cause" is blissful experience. But bragging about it is cheap.

Donor status isn't that cheap. You need to pay for it.
Fortunately most of the members on this forum can afford to pay it.

So we pay and then brag

Default You don't care to answer simple question but love blaming and accusing

@snathan -

i created this id last month and have never created any id on IV before. Yes, i have been using this site as a "FreeLoader" (in your words) since last month. My intention was donate for cause in future and that's why i asked some simple questions regarding how funds will be utilized. You or any core member didn't care to answer my question but instead started blaming me. I will rest my case and leave IV right away.

OP,

You need to learn about the organization you are actively participating.
As a starting point, please watch the following video by Aman Kapoor, the founder of IV. He spent thousands of his owned hard earned money to lay foundation for this great organization. He got his GC but still works for this organization. Some of your questions are answered in this video.

Default Donate link is working for me

Donate link is working for me. I can see the bright green Donate link. The web site was down many times during the day. May be too much traffic in the site or some issues with the web server.

Thanks for trying to Donate to IV.

Default Genuine questions

I think your questions are genuine. Any body who pays his/her hard earned money would ask such questions. In my opinion, they should ask such questions.

Now, to answer your questions:
1. There is no such link available and that kind of specific information would not be provided by IV - I mean a breakdown of income and expense details. But information such as who our lobbying firm are, how much did IV pay to them etc. are openly available in this forum to all members (donors and non-donors). Please take some time and read thru the site and various forum postings.

2. Details about the core group, State chapter leaders etc. are also available openly in this web site. Again you will have to spend some time to search for the specific info.

its unfair that people who contributed in past (before this "donor" thingy) have been left out.
ex: i contributed 100$ sometime back, now i am expected to contribute again to join "DONOR".

request to admins: pls consider members who have contributed in past and add them to donor's list.

who is asking to be rewarded? we are asking to be treated fairly considering past contributions.
i wouldnot be cribbing if you folks hadnot opened up a "DONOR" section and exchange news among yourselves.

this behavior discourages me to contribute further, as what is the guarantee that in future you wouldn't open up a new section called "MEMBERS" and expect people to pay to join them?

Please let me know.

Thanks
Thanks fr your support to Immigration voice

In order for us to encourage people to contrbute we started the donor system. We are encouraging people to contribute 25 dollar per month to subscribe. If they pay more say- 100, then it will give them subscription for one month

we have just started this system and hope to fine tune and improve and also provide more services to all our members.

We are trying not to include past contributions because it will get tough for us to get future contributions that we can invest in IV for all future and current initiatives
Bellmontboy...The above response was from Pappu a few months back when I reached out to him via PM regarding Donor status.
