The current health crisis will soon morph into an economic crisis that, according to the OECD, may be the worst since the Great Depression.
Times will be extremely difficult for an increasing number of people.
For some, the times will be dire, particularly for those living in the poorer regions of the world.
A growing group of people, having previously donated, will now be lining up for help themselves.
This will overwhelm the resources of the nonprofit sector relying on donations, philanthropy and government aid.
But there is good news.
We have the technology and the concept to turn your $1 into $billions for the nonprofit sector through collective action.
The idea is simple – extend the idea of corporate social responsibility to include the funding of the nonprofit sector and, thereby, integrate the nonprofit sector directly into the global economy.
We call this the New Third Way.
The nonprofit sector plays an integral part in the global economy. In fact, without the nonprofit sector there would be no global economy.
In the US alone, the nonprofit sector employs more than 12 million people. This is more than just about any other sector of employment including manufacturing, construction and agriculture.
Globally, there are over 10 million nonprofit organizations, employing millions of people and delivering services to billions more.
And this sector is now primed to lead the global post-pandemic economic recovery starting with addressing a glaring weakness and failure of the global economy - the myopic belief that the sole responsibility of corporations is to deliver profits to shareholders.
We now have the technology and the concept to correct this failure - once and for all - by harnessing the power of the free market.
Help us correct this failure by voting on the proposition that corporate social responsibility should be extended to include the funding of the nonprofit sector.
How it works
Feedback through Trruster is from people whose identity has been verified through a payment process. The results are, therefore, more trustworthy than anonymous feedback, making them extremely valuable to decision-makers.
If the results to the above-mentioned proposition show a shift in consumer sentiment with regard to corporate social responsibility, competition will force all businesses to adjust their business models to accommodate this new development.
This will create a growing and ongoing flow of capital into the global economy beyond government bailouts, credit markets and private capital.
As such, the nonprofit sector will be the next source of real economic growth, creating jobs, restoring confidence and mitigating the effects of global economic downturns and crises like the current pandemic.
Will this mean the end of philanthropy?
No, this will not mean the end of philanthropy. Giving to and sharing with those less fortunate is an innately human trait that will never disappear.
What it does mean is that the obligations of the commercial sector will expand beyond just delivering profits to shareholders to include helping those less fortunate.
Importantly, the process will ensure that corporations that utilize tax havens to minimize their tax will not escape their social obligations through clever accounting.
Your most important social capital investment
Your $1 dollar Trruster membership will be the most important social capital investment you will ever make because it can turn into $billions for the nonprofit sector as the corporate sector responds to the growing market pressure.
This will create jobs, protect the most vulnerable in the community and go a long way to restoring consumer confidence.
It will also open the pathway to a post-pandemic future that is more inclusive, more equitable and more just than at any time in human history.

Our collective future depends on it.
