Donate to Just One Look
The Just One Look Project is made possible by the Just One Look Foundation (formerly The River Ganga Foundation), the non-profit organization we operate and through which we receive your donations. Our work is supported by small donations from people all over the world. Currently, donations make up more than 95% of our income.
The Just One Look Foundation is a public charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code and under the authority and supervision of the Internal Revenue Service and the California Franchise Tax Board.
Donations to our non-profit organization are tax-deductible for US residents.
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 (formerly The River Ganga 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. The standard profit and loss accounting requirements are the same as they are for a corporation formed to generate income for stockholders, but there are no stockholders in a public non-profit, and no profits are distributed 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 insure that the organization remains in compliance with the rules.

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.
