Influence The World (ITW) has been organized to provide charitable support for those in need around the world. The organization will provide benevolent assistance and distributions to individuals and families in need.
By providing this charitable support to individuals, ITW will help to improve the quality of life for those in need around the world.
The board of directors will oversee the general implementation of this activity. It may hire staff as may be necessary to successfully implement the programs and plans. Volunteers may also be recruited to further sustain the organization's programs.
Though incorporated in the state of California, ITW will provide its charitable and benevolent support to qualifying individuals in need, around the world, beginning in Mexico. Currently, board members conduct administrative work in their own homes and office space at no charge to the organization. This donated space will be utilized until such a time when these arrangements can no longer accommodate the organization's operations. At that time, the board of directors may seek other suitable spaces to meet the needs of the organization.
The organization will allocate 100% of its time to this activity.
No professional fundraising is planned. Funding will be sought through grants and individual/corporate sponsorships. The board of directors and others interested in supporting the work of the organization will develop and implement direct solicitations and grant requests as interest can be identified. Online contributions will be facilitated at the website. The organization will comply with regulatory requirements for online donations as they are developed. No materials have been developed at this time.
Charitable. The organization will provide charitable and benevolent support to qualifying individuals and families in need, around the world, beginning in Mexico. Therefore, ITW qualifies for a charitable purpose under IRC Section 501(c)(3).

“I like to imagine a world where people breathe clean air and drink clean water and use clean energy freely, a world where nobody goes hungry or homeless because we help each other out and grow and thrive together in harmony because we are motivated by compassion and not money.
