Where your donation goes
People and Projects: We have only two people on staff, John and Carla Sherman, to support a variety of projects. We do all that we do with only the two of us. This makes your donation a great investment in a very efficient not-for-profit organization. With your donations, we'll be able to keep this work available to all free of charge.
Technology: Website, blog, podcast and forum development and maintenance.
Donations to our non-profit organization are tax-deductible for US residents.

Employee Matching Gifts Program
You can double your contribution to support our work at no extra cost to you. Many companies and corporations offer this program as a benefit to their employees and retirees who wish to donate to a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization. Your employer pledges to match your contribution to qualifying organizations.
Rules and regulations vary from company to company, but generally, your employer will match your donation 1:1 up to $1,000 or more a year. If you donate $100, your employer will give another $100. Some companies may also match in-kind gifts, or gifts of products and equipment (like computers).
Most often all you will need to do is complete a form and turn it in to your company.
Please take a moment to get a matching gift form from your HR/Personnel office and follow the directions to initiate a match. See your company's matching gift form for full information on matching gift eligibility and program limitations.

Income tax deductions in the US
What does it mean to operate a 501(c)(3), public non-profit corporation?
Simply speaking, it means that John and Carla Sherman are the principal officers of a corporation that has been granted non-profit status by the IRS.
The process required to be granted that status began with the incorporation of the Just One Look Foundation as a California Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation on December 20, 2000. Upon the completion of the process of incorporation, we began the process of applying for non-profit exemption from the IRS. This process entailed a total of five years supervision by the IRS at the end of which we were granted full exemption from state and federal corporate income tax.
There is little or no difference in the day-to-day operations of a for-profit and a not-for-profit corporation other than that the income of a not-for-profit corporation is not passed on to anyone. In a public non-profit corporation profits can be spent only on programs in service to the mission that was defined in the IRS application, on salaries for staff, on equipment needed to serve the mission, and on general operating expenses. We are required by the IRS to file a comprehensive annual report designed to ensure that the organization remains in compliance with the rules.
