I am looking to raise $150,000 to fund the following items:
1) Full and Part Time employment for 2-3 individuals to coordinate efforts Nationwide regarding Phantom Voter Scores. My time will NOT be Billed. I will coordinate and create records for all expenditures and this information will be made public. Current estimate is about $90,000 for first 12 months. Please note if more staff is needed, I might need to raise additional funds.
2) Data Purchases that aid in better Phantom Voter Scores (Estimate is $10-25,000)
3) Rental Space ($15-25,000 Annually)
4) Utilities, Phone, Internet, etc ($12,000 Annually)
5) Office Furniture ($5-10,000)
All of Phantom Voter Scores by County (3,143 Counties and County equivalents): If the process goes more quickly than anticipated, the goal would be to drill down and create these datasets for all precincts in America and make them FREELY available!
Far too much money is being raised ($100's of million on Voter Integrity Projects Nationwide). I do believe that this bootstrapped budget could make a significant dent and I have no desire to raise additional funds without tangible deliverables that the America Public is convinced warrant additional funds. Far too often it seems too many people try to capitalize on hardships and hope.
I have turned down offers to join various organizations as I do not want my name or reputation being used to "raise cash" that far exceeds what is needed to get a tremendous amount of work done.
This is my best guesstimate of what will create significant results as there are 1000's of volunteers that will be coordinated by these 2-3 paid positiions.
God Bless and Thank you for your consideration in helping this cause!
