Policies: Fundraising and Sponsorship

Mission Statement:

“To encourage public policy that promotes personal responsibility, individual liberty, limited government, and free markets. In an effort to emulate the principles upon which the United States was founded, we think our mission is best fulfilled through efforts from the bottom up, not the top down.”

This event is for “We the People” of Nebraska. It has become a growing problem that various entities and organizations have attempted to “jump on the bandwagon” and “sponsor” Tea Party events across the country, or  frankly, attempting to “hi-jack” the entire phenomenon. Almost without fail, these groups are highly focused on fund raising and what is known as “list building”.

These kinds of actions by organizations in the past have actually only helped to move us down the path we are currently traveling as a country. If average Americans were unfettered in applying our common sense, and were able to stick together in our efforts, there is no limit to what we could accomplish. We could unclench the very small circle of groups, politicians,  elitists who grasp at power. In the past, grassroots efforts have been co-opted, and where has that gotten us?

I promise you that anytime you provide your contact information at an event or activity in which I am assisting or for which I am responsible, I will never share that information with anyone. It is only being collected for the purposes of contacting you for future activities or to give you information that is relevant to the reason we first came into contact.

With that in mind, those of us working together to convene this April 11th event or any event in the future welcome the assistance of any group or individual whose goals are the same as those found in the “Mission Statement”.

However, regardless of the contribution by any group or individual, no contact information will be shared with them. The best way any entity can be of help is to pass the information regarding events on to their own member list.

We will not seek to raise money for general purposes (i.e. to build “an organization”) and will not advocate for any group who wishes to do so.

IF any funds are solicited in any way, it will be for very specifically stated purposes such as to pay for the cost of equipment used to conduct an event, costs of printing, etc.  Expenses requiring payment will be listed. We prefer when ever possible to solicit donations of items or services needed.

We will not endorse candidates for office nor will any event or activity serve as a venue for “stump speeches”. However, any candidate or official interested in participating will not be dismissed out of hand. Let’s talk: do our goals align with yours?
