How does the Foundation fund its work?

Sounds True, Inc. covers most of the operating expenses of the Foundation. However, we rely heavily on the generosity of our community and private donors to be able to bring our work into the world.

Sounds True, Inc. also contributes significant pro bono services to the Foundation to ensure most of your donation goes directly to transforming people’s lives.

What does my donation do?

We spend most of your money on providing transformational education in the form of books, courses, scholarships, and training for social leaders and communities in need.

To make this happen, here are some of areas we need to fund to fulfill our mission:

• Material costs
For all of our transformational programs, we need to cover all the costs of production, including program development, design, copywriting, video editing, mentorship fees, and customer service.

• Partnership development
We work with a wide range of partners across many sectors. We have staff who are paid to reach out, develop, and maintain these relationships.

• Personnel costs
People manage our projects, so our costs include salaries and benefits for staff, including technical experts like videographers, audio engineers, and production coordinators.

Is the Foundation part of Sounds True?

We are aligned in purpose, but we are separate organizations. The Sounds True Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization while Sounds True is a for-profit incorporated company.

The two organizations work closely to help make transformational education widely available to social leaders and communities in need.

Where can I get information on the Sounds True Foundation financials?

You will be able to find our annual reports, 990s, and audit reports on our website at the end of 2019, which will represent our first full year of operations.
