PayPal is the safest, simplest way to transfer money internationally, using all currencies and with relatively low fees. By using PayPal, you guarantee that no one (including us) has access to your credit card information. If you choose monthly support, you can stop your payments at any time.
Note that you do not need to open a PayPal account to make a donation; after clicking on the “donate” or “join” buttons, you will be given the option to log into PayPal OR bill your credit card without opening an account.
If you do not want to use PayPal, email us at (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will give you instructions for a wire transfer or check payment (via our fiscal sponsor, Nonviolence International).
Where does the money go?
We Are Not Numbers relies for 80 percent of its resources on crowdfunding. (The other 20 percent comes from a partnership with Rebuilding Alliance, an American nonprofit that pays us in return for developing stories about its work in Gaza.) Our primary expenses are:
- Rent, which we pay monthly to Gaza Sky Geeks (an initiative of MercyCorps) for space in its building.
- Salaries for three full-time staff, one part-time and two "contractors" (paid for work completed). All were unemployed youths prior to their addition to our team, and we try to rotate the persons in these positions as they gain valuable experience.
- Transportation expenses for writers who must travel longer distances for meetings and interviews.
- Activities for project members, both educational (workshops) and fun (BBQs by the sea).
