OUR COMMITMENT TO FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY AND TRANSPARENCY
We want our DemCast donors to understand where their money is going and why. The Board and Leadership Team commit to running a lean, effective organization. DemCast chose to incorporate as a 501(c)4 nonprofit due to our mission of advocacy, training, and our commitment to protecting American democracy. DemCast is not a Political Action Committee (PAC), nor is it a Super PAC. We are an advocacy-focused non-profit organization.
Our costs derive from site development/maintenance and centralized volunteer & content coordination, both managed by a core group of dedicated paid staff. Other auxiliary costs may include the purchase of items to help disseminate our message and support our staff, such as audio equipment and mixing software for grassroots podcasters.
DemCast is a social-purpose non-profit. We have made the decision to build a media site free of outside influence. There are no ads. We do not get paid for clicks, but are sustained solely on donations from grassroots supporters. Because our revenue isn’t click-driven, we don’t take in any direct revenue from the creative contributions of grassroots activists who post on the site. This sets us apart from other media sites. And we’re proud of that.
We are committed to ensuring all expenses remain reasonable, prudent, and in direct support of our organizational mission.
We commit to transparency, responsibility, and strong fiscal stewardship. All donors who opt in for email updates will receive regular communication with details of spending by the organization. Periodic updates will also be available on this website.
