HamForGood - Personal

Overview

HamForGood is a system I’ve created to make the world a better place. In my personal life it consists of monthly donations to organizations supporting causes I care about. In HAMY.LABS it’s an initiative where I give 20% of my profits to support causes that help better the world.

HamForGood - Personal

Here are the causes and organizations I’m personally supporting each month.

  • Art - MoMA - $10
  • Climate - 350.org - $10 + $x based on Earth Tax
  • Accessible Technology - Canonical / Ubuntu - $10
  • Freedom of Information - New York Times - $15
  • Social Justice - ACLU - $10
  • Social Justice - ADL - $10
  • Social Investing Fund - $125

The Social Investing Fund is a fund I’m creating with an explicit purpose to better the world over a long period of time. The idea is that it’ll work very much like a grant - siphoning off money each year to give to worthy causes. Here the strategy is to take 1% from the fund every year and give it to a cause. This 1% should be low enough for the fund to continue to grow into the future but large enough that it could make an impact. Over time I expect its contributions to be sizable.
