Who decides where and to whom surplus is distributed?
- The Commons Society Trust Fund annually receives 30% of surpluses from within the network as a whole and then redistributes this through a network of skilled charities dedicated to different aspects of our culture – education, health, conservation, arts etc.
- The Commons Society Council is democratically elected by all members (co-workers of companies plus others that chose to join) and this Council has oversight of the Commons Society infrastructure. The Council sets the rules of the Commons and provides accountability oversight to the overall distribution of funds.
- It operates on the principle of building trust through transparency.
