Every time a business makes a contribution to their Safe Schools Pledge Campaign, 95% of the donation goes directly to a separate trust account (Schools Funding Account). 100% of this Schools Funding Account is then forwarded to K-12 public school districts to be used for security and safety needs. The 95% tax deduction is compliant with 26 USC § 170.
The other 5% will be transferred directly to the OurhouseUSA account. These funds will be invested to help OurhouseUSA continue to develop into the Ultimate All-In-One Youth Development Community.
When consumers join the OurhouseUSA community, they can register to support businesses participating in the “Safe Schools Pledge.” Consumers have the option to select which companies receive their support – and in return, they’ll receive unique promotional emails from these businesses.
When a business signs up for the Safe Schools Pledge they are categorized into their local county. All funds donated to the OurhouseUSA Schools Funding Account are tracked by county. All funds donated in a county are then distributed equally among all the public-school districts in that county. Every school district has different security needs; therefore, each individual school district has the freedom to decide how to spend the donations towards their schools’ safety.
