A Different Kind of Fundraising

I offer my financial know-how.

I'll offer to take a look at anyone's current financial structures free of charge, and if I can manage to save you some tax dollars, or find you more cashflow during the month (mainly the Canadians for the Tax Savings) you donate 5% of the savings to your favourite local charity, and 5% to the TFP. All I ask for is a happy testimonial saying good things about me

If this idea flies, I'll setup a proper form to fill out and a process so we can do this in some sort of orderly fashion.

-=-

In a longer term idea, I'd propose to create a TFP fund for sustainability. Through a joint venture or a foundational structure - whatever works best - we can make this place break even and eventually even fund prizes for our internal TFP contests and what not.

I for one love this place, and would love to see it flourish and grow.

I really like the idea, but there will be trust issues to solve, no?
I need plenty of help with my situation, and your offer sounds MORE than fair....

Put me in the support column. I'd like to see a little more about how it would work longterm, but getting it going is more important.

I brought the idea up, and a few mods pm'd me about it, but I'm still not sure if it's cool if I start teaching it or not... Will get banned? Perhaps I could just start another thread?
