nuw-13OUR ROLES

This section of the website serves to communicate expectations. What should you expect of yourself as a member of NUW? What do you justifiably expect of others?

  • Members:

  7. Donations: Money fuels every kind of organization that accomplishes anything great. That’s simple reality. Your donations will be used to fund both local and global campaigns. You will see how your money gets spent when our annual audit report comes out. You will likewise see, in that report, my earnings and those of any paid members of my family (see “Accountability”). I can tell you that I do not expect to take any salary in the early stages. Once we get going strong, I will take a minimal salary.
