Funding Needs

In order to reach a growing number of people and promote even more transformation in individual lives and our world, we would like to be able to hire at least one full-time staff member. Currently we rely almost exclusively on volunteers, including our full-time volunteer executive director. We have only two part-time contractors who average about 12 hours a week with us. With your support, we could undoubtedly reach more people and make an ever bigger difference. A grant or donation ranging anywhere from $1,000 to $100,000 would be greatly appreciated and help us to inspire and transform even more people's lives and communities

Principal Officer

Frederick Burks

BIO

After working for 18 years as a contract language interpreter with the U.S. Department of State, Mr. Burks resigned due to excessive secrecy requirements. He had interpreted personally for Presidents Clinton and Bush, as well as for numerous other top dignitaries. After receiving hidden information on deep cover-ups in 2001, Mr. Burks dedicated himself to building a brighter future through the educational and inspirational websites and email lists which are now managed by PEERS. He is deeply committed to working for the good of all people in our world and to promoting personal and global transformation through love and empowerment.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"I'd be happy to share with you anything you'd like to know about our wonderful organization. I feel privileged and honored to work with empowering activists and caring citizens from around the world in helping people to transform our lives, communities, and world in a most meaningful way.

With very best wishes,
Frederick Burks"
