Where will the funds go?
The DAO will choose how and where we spend the funds.
Governance token holders will be encouraged to submit funding proposals that allocate a portion of funds (min grant size: $50k) to a charitable organization. The core team plans to put forward a few initial funding proposals as well.
These organizations could include community centers, orphanages, churches, or other groups who meet the following criteria:
- Are registered as 501(c)(3) in good standing with the IRS
- Meet Endaoment’s due diligence and funding policies
- Are aligned with ElfDAO’s mission and confirm that they can deliver gifts within 6 months of receipt of funds
Holders will then vote on the proposals which will determine the distribution of funds. This project’s goal is to run on a short time frame; we intend to distribute all of the funds as quickly as possible, and then spin down the project before the end of January.
In addition, we will be reserving 2.5% of funds raised to cover overhead costs (1% for multi-signature wallet and Juicebox gas fees, 1.5% for enDAOment, our fiscal sponsor’s transaction fees) as managed by the core team. All overhead costs will be transparently documented and none will be used to compensate the core team — leftover operational funds will be contributed to charity through a proposal.
