What is RTM Platform’s membership program?
RTM is working towards being powered by members who support keeping our platform free and accessible to all, through our membership program. We ask our most active and committed users to donate a small amount monthly to help improve and maintain our free site for people everywhere to create change.
Donations are received by Rightthrume.com (RTM), an organization that supports citizen-led social movements in countries all over the world. Donations may have tax advantages – please check with your tax advisor.
What do donations support?
When you donate to Rightthrume.com (RTM), you are making an unrestricted donation to support RTM’s mission, including providing tools and support for citizen-led campaigning. To learn more about RTM, visit the About page at https://www.rightthrume.com/about/.
RTM does not keep the funds donated at a country level. These funds are reinvested back into the local country office to support its mission of empowering citizen-led campaigning.
What is RTM Platform’s impact model?
RTM is a network of nonprofits based in a diverse set of countries with very different realities. We see that the current technology alone will not maximize the potential for social change. We want to go further by incubating and accelerating citizen-led, technology-driven social movements on critical issues. We are a learning organization, asking big questions about social change and empowerment, and finding new ways to achieve our mission.
We are impact-driven. As an organization, we always prioritize maximizing impact. Wherever possible, we design our work so that the products and value it creates are free, open, and commons-based, creating a shared environment for social good.
Why do you need donations?
As an organization, we are required to reinvest all of our revenue back into activities that advance our mission. All the revenue we receive is reinvested into the platform to help empower people to win their campaigns, every day.
RTM offers free grassroots training and support to users of the RTM platform primarily in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Japan, and Thailand, through locally registered not-for-profit chapters. The organization is funded through a combination of small donations and philanthropic funds.
