We Fund Community Not-For-Profits by Purchasing From Participating Members
Participating members, including individuals and businesses, use a phone or computer to register sales made to any members who share their Fractal Economy Member ID.
Our system calculates 3% of such sales as a Community Contribution. Businesses are invoiced for Community Contributions when exceeding $10.
Each Individual Member is being given an equal vote and ability to direct funds from our Community Contributions Fund to approved Not-For-Profits (NFPs) as a donation, dispensed monthly upon reaching $3000 and according to the preferences of members. Together we strengthen our cohesion as a society by intentionally preferencing sellers who are supporting the NFPs who likewise support us and our community.

We intentionally buy from Businesses who contribute some of the sale to democractically chosen NFPs who support our community.
Search our Fractal Directory and look for the FEC logo on your local businesses website, window and trade vehicles, and preference them with your trade purchases. This is how more business sales are contributed to support the invaluable NFPs who admirably support our community.
