Q: Where does the money go?
A: The money goes for two things: Awareness and Growth. Fortunately, in most cases, we can kill two birds with one stone. For example, an investment in an event such as the Walk for H at the Rock n’ Roll Marathon not only does a great job of raising awareness about HSV & HPV, but promotes ProjectAccept.org at the same time, contributing to growth.
Our online awareness campaigns on Google, Bing, etc will reflect the same strategy, stretching every dollar further. Once critical mass is achieved, there will be enough to begin grants toward cure research while continuing public growth.
Q: Where does the money not go?
It doesn’t go anywhere else. All ProjectAccept.org staff and management is 100% unpaid; even their travel and lodging expenses, they pay out of pocket.
Q: Can I get a copy of your IRS filings?
ProjectAccept.org remains in good standing with the IRS. You can view our account here. As our revenues to date are <$50,000 per years, we remain on IRS schedule 990-EZ. At such time as we are required to invest in more complicated accounting and the compilation of more detailed financial reports, summary quarterly and annual reports will be made available to the public. For specific financial questions, please feel free to contact us.
Q: Where do you get your statistics?
A: Our statistics are cross-referenced from 4 main sources:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – US Federal Government Agency within the Department of Health and Human Services
World Health Organization (WHO) – the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system
PubMed – PubMed comprises more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.
PLoS (Public Library of Science) – Non-profit organization of scientists committed to making the world’s scientific and medical literature freely accessible to scientists and to the public.
