The Foundation to Decrease World Suck
was informally created in 2007, and became a real entity in November 2011, when it was incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in the State of Montana. The IRS designated the Foundation a 501(c)3 charity on January 23, 2013. The FTDWS is 100% volunteer operated and exists solely for the purpose of fundraising for the benefit of other non-profit organizations. The majority of fundraising is transacted through and during the annual Project for Awesome. The board members for the Foundation to Decrease World Suck are John Green, Hank Green, Mike Green, Benny Fine, Valerie Barr, Rosianna Halse Rojas, Julie Walsh Smith, Angela Lin, and Taylor Behnke.
The Foundation to Decrease World Suck can only donate money to nonprofit organizations that are 501(c)3 or foreign equivalent classified charities. Unfortunately, we cannot support any general project or individual; it has to be an actual designated charity.
