This has obviously already saved a lot of people's lives, including those of a bunch of people who I've never met.

Help wanted

If you're an aspiring  donor, please first implement what seems practical to you from the Tiny, Do-It-Yourself Ways To Tell Complete Strangers page.  

Things we need: solutions to technical problems, introductions to people we ought to be in touch with, funding with no strings attached, or funding and complete ownership from start to finish of projects we deem relevant. 
 

Assistantships 

On-site full-time assistantships 

If you can obtain your own funding to do this, you can work here.  This is like no other place on earth to work.  You'll either love it or hate it, probably a combination of the two.  One thing that everyone agrees on -- we have a unique way of doing things.  Just get in touch with us and tell us why you think you would be useful.

Off-site, part-time ongoing assistantships

Take7 on an area to manage, such as assistant Webmaster.  For any assistantship you would have to be available throughout the day and/or evening for short consultations/base-touches to keep things on track.  But the work you do can certainly be relegated to certain hours and days, by mutual agreement. 

Let us know how much you're willing to do.
 

Project assistantships

Computer programming and applications

We need, currently, increased capabilities for doing statistical and data analysis, and general consulting by people who familiarize themselves with our web site and make suggestions for cool things that we can partner in creating and they can add.  Projects must be done on an interactive basis with a member of our staff who volunteers to work with you. 

Accounting / Bookkeeping / Legal services

What can we say?  Get in touch if you want to donate.    We can always use another voice.
 

Assisting by creation of corporate education, participation, and sponsorship

If you can find us a corporation, or a prominent individual, to partner with us, you will have done a great service not only for all of humanity but also for that corporation or individual.  Individuals like that should begin their partnership with us by appearing on the Cure Show as a guest.  And we will be thrilled to do a group Cure Show for the staff of any company that wishes to make immunics a part of their healthcare incentive. The training can start at the top or the bottom -- it doesn't matter.  When people see other people not getting sick, and they get sick, they tend to join the ranks of the immuners.  

The companies that do immunics will beat their competitors.

An army that is not beset by numerous diseases is certain to win. 

--  Sun Tzu

Employer Matching

You could multiply your gift to immunics.org through employer matching contributions.   Thousands of companies have matching gift programs which double or even triple individual, tax-deductible contributions made by their employees.
 
Banners for immunity

One type of corporate partnership we are especially looking for is with popular, well-trafficked Internet companies.  Donations of banner ads on their web sites would be a stellar way to contribute.  Contacting these companies and inducing them to make those donations is a critical type of assistantship -- we need as many people as possible doing that.  If you cure them they're grateful.   Any interested company should take note.  When Yahoo and AOL discover the truth in this, they'll be donating a lot of banner ads.

A good example of a corporation / individual to partner with is Dr. Andrew Weil, who publishes a magazine called Self Healing.  

 

Ways To Donate $

All donations to this ministry are tax-deductible as such.   This includes goods, and services if you are a professional in a certain field.  

The Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund has approved us for their list of charities, and you may wish to set up a Gift Fund with them to support us in an effectively tax-deductible manner.  Or you can use one of the other options listed here, which can be set up with your attorney or your accountant, depending on which option you choose.

Before making a donation to World Harmonic Unified Ministers, we recommend that you consult your tax adviser or attorney for full advice on the effect of your gift.  We will send an itemized receipt at year-end to you or your tax consultant upon request.   When Fidelity Investments evaluated us as a charity, they did so by going to our web site, which is the information that you should furnish any professional who is interested in doing such an evaluation.  We can also send them a copy of our articles of incorporation.

Usable items

One of our colleagues owns a CD company, and donated CDs. We, of course, had to make what was on the CD and give it to him to manufacture.  We are more than willing to partner with you in ways like this.

Used computer hardware, if it's good, often comes in very handy.  One of our most important donors, Al Hartman, gave us, over the two-year period when we first started this, approximately half of all the hardware, and, for that matter, the labor that made this happen. 

Kudos, Al.

A one-time cash donation

Monthly tithes

This is by far, to us, the best way to make money donations.  Any ministry needs to know what they're monthly income will be -- we are no exception.  The people who have given us amounts of money per month that we have counted on, indefinitely or for a specific number of months, have been the backbone of this effort, and made this easier by far than any other kinds of donors.  Here's a fun little note I wrote to our colleagues about this.

Bequests

A wonderful opportunity to repay your kids for all the times they disobeyed you.

Charitable Gift Fund

The Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund has approved us for their list of charities, and you may wish to set up a Gift Fund with them to support us in an effectively tax-deductible manner. 

Charitable Remainder Trust

CRT Gifts of Stocks or Bonds

A charitable gift of stocks or bonds provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously sharing with others. A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation. In addition to helping immunics, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your current needs.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds are often contributed to Habitat for Humanity. This simple, effective method of giving doubles your tax benefit:If you itemize your return, you can receive an income tax charitable deduction for a contribution of appreciated securities; those owned for longer than a year are deductible for their full fair market value. You also avoid capital gains tax.

How to Make a Gift of Securities

There are several ways to make a gift of securities. If you have the actual certificate, you can mail the unendorsed certificate and a signed stock power (in separate envelopes) to our Gift Planning department. The postmarks on the envelopes determine the gift date. Most financial institutions can provide stock powers, or, if you prefer, we will send one to you.

The fastest and easiest way to make a stock gift is to have your broker perform an electronic transfer.

Gifts of Closely Held Stock

Provided you have owned it for more than one year, a gift of closely held stock may enable you to make a more significant gift than you otherwise could, while generating an income tax charitable deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the transfer.  By making a gift of stocks, capital gains taxes are avoided.  So long as there is neither binding obligation on WHUM to accept any subsequent purchase offers nor any specified price at which WHUM must sell, WHUM may entertain offers from family members or the corporation issuing the stock to purchase the transferred shares.
 


Charitable Annuities, you name it
 
As you can see, there are as many ways to contribute as there are miracles in the sky.  Please contact our Executive Director, Greg Morkovin, if you would like to donate time, money, resources, expertise, or your service in any of the above capacities. 

We will all personally be very grateful if you do this.
