Our mission is to make one simple insight into the root cause of all human mental misery and one simple act of inward looking that effectively eliminates that cause universally available and accessible to all. Just One Look is the project we created to bring this message to the world. Visit the Just One Look Project website.
The River Ganga Foundation is the organization that makes possible the work of John and Carla Sherman. The Foundation serves this purpose by using the money donated to it to purchase the equipment, services, and utilities needed to conduct that work.
The Foundation is managed by John Sherman (President) and Carla Sherman (Executive Director). Its office is located in Ojai, California. A Brief History of Our Work.
The River Ganga Foundation is a public charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code and under the authority and supervision of the Internal Revenue Service and the California Franchise Tax Board.
The River Ganga Foundation was started in Boulder, Colorado in 1999 by Amber Terrell and Carlos Lopez.
In 2000, John was invited to join them and a few months later Carla also joined the foundation. Shortly after John and Carla joined the foundation, Carlos left the foundation and then, in early 2002, Amber left the foundation.
Since 2002, The River Ganga Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that operates as a 509(a)(2) public charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code, and under the authority and supervision of the Internal Revenue Service and the California Franchise Tax Board. The Foundation is required by law to substantiate the basis of its not-for-profit, tax-exempt status by filing annual financial reports and statements of activities with the IRS and the State of California Franchise Tax Board.
Our work is supported by small donations from supporting members all over the world. Donations make up more than 93% of our income. Donations to our organization are tax-deductible for US residents.
Since practically all the income to the Foundation comes from relatively small donations, the Foundation is considered a Public Charity by the IRS. And that means that if you itemize your deductions, your income tax may be reduced by donations made to us.
