Manifesto of the IFCoLog Administration, Communication, and Donations Cooperative (IFCoLog ACDC).

IFColog ACDC is a new initiative designed to help groups in computational logic administer their finances.

1.2) IFCoLog ACDC intends to take on the burden of continuous administration of funds on behalf of participating organisations.

1.3) It is intended that participating organisations benefit both from cooperation with each other, and the administrative services of IFCoLog, but also from the status of IFCoLog as a registered charity. Since IFCoLog is a charity, donations to it are tax free, pay units can be made in the name of a charity which has more fiscal advantages.

1.4) To participate in IFCoLog ACDC, and benefit from all its accounting and administrative services, shall be free to all groups that are members of IFCoLog (membership of IFCoLog is also free, upon a supervised registration process).

2) Details

2.2) Designated members of participating organisations may, at any time, request a financial report detailing the sums held by IFCoLog ACDC on their behalf.

2.3) Designated of participating organisations may, at any time, withdraw or transfer funds from the IFCoLog ACDC.

2.4) Donations made to IFCoLog ACDC in its capacity as a charity for computational logic, shall be distributed by IFCoLog ACDC to its participating organisations solely in accordance with the instructions of the donor.

2.5) If a participating organisation wishes to request financial support from other participating organisations, for example if it is temporarily low on funds, then IFCoLog ACDC shall make suitable confidential requests on their behalf. If two participating organisations agree to carry out an exchange of funds, IFCoLog ACDC shall administer it.

3) Scope

3.2) It is NOT within the scope of IFCoLog ACDC to decide how incoming sponsorship and donations to IFCoLog are to be distributed among the participating organisations.

4) Confidentiality
