How it works
Every penny contributed to the Peace Pot stays in the Peace Pot for all of eternity. As an Endowment, the principal keeps growing and funds cannot be taken out of the principal. As a result, interest is earned on the principal and grows as the endowment grows. The Peace Pot belongs to all the Citizens of Peacetown.
The principal is kept in an interest-bearing account at a local credit union. Once per year, on the Winter Solstice, the interest that has accrued over the year is taken out and used to fund peace projects throughout the world.
Each contributor has one vote to determine the percentage of funds that will go towards a project. This is the Voice of the People.
One woman and one man from each race (red, yellow, black, white & brown) will determine which projects will be funded each year, based on the biggest social impact.
