Project Provisions

 

The ISDA manages a communal grain-house of "Provisions" to share with qualifying projects. Projects that have completed all the required phases will be listed or matched with strategic philanthropists (Social Exchange Network of CoVestors) for consideration. The ISDA releases communal provisions where cash flow potentials are observed by two separate boards of directors. The G47 Board will have committees at the local participating municipality, while the ISDA oversees the Global assessment.  Together we apply the communal provisions to the most "worthy" stewards.  

Where there is greater potential for cash flow, or where the PPM quota is needed for an under-provisioned CPO, the ICOs received from both AUS Schedule and CoVestments received from the ICFMS PPM commitments may be used to complete the gap to initiate the Procurement and Project progression.

Important Note:  To “qualify” as a social-enterprise under the foregoing strategies, an organization must understand that:

  1. The primary purpose of the social-enterprise is to further the well-defined social mission and philanthropic purpose of the Principal (the servant-leadership).

  2. The acquisition of property or personal income are not primary purposes.

  3. The provisions are not to be used to support any lobbying or special interest activity.  Unlike a grant or forgivable debt financial structure, ISDA’s structure is program-related and mission-based awards, through social-enterprises, which are expected to be reinvested back into community.

 

The capacity of the applicants to comprehend the fundamental belief that: Money doesn’t build companies or solve problems … people do.
