Please tell the $GTH community more about you and your background. 😄

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Controller at Gather Network:

Hey all, my name is Patrick, I am the Financial Controller for Gather and I head off the Incubation business line. I have been in the Crypto and blockchain space for some time, with a focus on real-world applications and adoption through start-up businesses. I am excited to bring Give Nation into our network so we can continue our work towards meaningful social impact, and independent financial sovereignty. This starts by providing unbias tools to our children.

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Contoller at Gather Network:

How can crypto enthusiasts optimize their investments & profits while simultaneously bettering the world?

Arnaud Saint-Paul @ Founder & CEO at GIVE Nation:

It is quite simple really.

Gather’s investors & ecosystem members, thanks to this partnership, are potentially able to save on their taxes, bringing more crypto-based support to this cause.

GTH donors within the United States may be able to receive a tax deduction for their contribution.

This incentive, coupled with the desire to secure a stronger, more sustainable ecosystem for tomorrow, makes participation in the GIVE Nation Initiative a rewarding proposition in every sense of the word

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Contoller at Gather Network:

What would the benefits of this partnership and campaign be to both individuals and the organization?

Gather token holders and the network benefit in a few ways. This partnership opens the doors to academia and provides access to compute power within those networks as Gather move’s Give into the incubation process. Though, before that these donations help bring on more schools, refine the curriculum, and also seed some of the development needs to move things along. To the US individual and corporation, there could also be a tax incentive for donating appreciable property. So, not only are donations helping make a difference, it is also potentially offsetting some taxes here in the United States. I will let @tapuat speak more on the school side.

Arnaud Saint-Paul @ Founder & CEO at GIVE Nation:

GIVE Nation, a global social impact blockchain initiative, unites and empowers all the children in the world with sustainable financial literacy.

From a school perspective, we offer them a curriculum that empowers teachers to help children from 5 to 18 so that they can learn about the Sustainable development goals of the UN and about giving and saving money

The partnership will enable us to provide this curriculum to more schools

and therefore teach a sustainable financial literacy to thousands of children

For example, we have signed partnerships with existing school networks to be able to include them in our next pilots.

As a consequence, we have to upgrade our currently curriculum to ease the scaling and incorporate easily more and more teachers.

Part of the donated funds will finance such upgrade so that we can impact thousands of schools

Our aim is to increase financial literacy by 100% in the schools adopting GIVE Nation’s Compassion classes (our fin.lit. curriculum).

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Contoller at Gather Network:

Give is a registered business in the US and a IRS 501(c)(3), correct?

Arnaud Saint-Paul @ Founder & CEO at GIVE Nation:

GIVE Nation is a 501c3 in the US and as such is authorized by the IRS to provide tax receipts for US tax payers.

I believe @Pdevereaux you have more information about this, right?

We are registered in New Hampshire, in the US.

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Contoller at Gather Network:

Fantastic, This allows US donations to be deducted from other gross income through itemization. Crypto is considered property in the US, so donations are limited to 30% of your adjusted gross income (AGI). There are plans in the future to provide tax incentives in other countries as well, correct?

Arnaud Saint-Paul @ Founder & CEO at GIVE Nation:

Correct, we are currently becoming a part of an international network of Non-profits that will enable us to provide the same advantages in several countries like Europe, Canada, etc. This is very exciting for us.

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Contoller at Gather Network:

At Gather, it’s a constant endeavor to support socially responsible projects and we are partnering with GIVE Nation in their noble initiative to focus on the education of children who will be the architects of the new world.

Gather is encouraging its users to support GIVE Nation in securing & envisioning our future in a world where philanthropy and sustainable financial literacy are crucial skills. They can be taught from an early age to create a more sustainable and stronger ecosystem for tomorrow.

Why did Gather choose to donate to GIVE Nation?

Arnaud Saint-Paul @ Founder & CEO at GIVE Nation:

I believe that Gather is proudly supporting the GIVE Nation Initiative as children are the future of our community and GIVE Nation is building crypto enabled sustainable financial literacy programs to teach the young generation new and relevant skills that will be required to succeed in the future.

Our current world is dynamic and is changing at a pace that the current education system is not able to adapt to, whereas GIVE Nation teaches skills that are demanded in the current and future market.

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Contoller at Gather Network:

Absolutely, as crypto becomes more mainstream and the gig economy movement continues to grow, there needs to be growth in sustainability through education and practice. Gather believes that these skills are structural to the overall health of our ecosystem and growing network,

Patrick Devereaux, Financial Contoller at Gather Network:

How will Give Nation allocate the funds?

Arnaud Saint-Paul @ Founder & CEO at GIVE Nation:

After a successful first pilot at the American School of Sofia, Bulgaria (read our impact report), we are preparing the next phase, expanding our Compassionate Kids Curriculum compatibility with more educational systems (Cambridge, Sharia, …) and making it video based to enable scaling.

With partners like EduccateGlobal.org or ISS, we will then be able to offer it to tens of thousands of schools in 2022. Thanks to your support, we will invest the target raise in the next 6 months in

Curriculum Evolution: 40%

Marketing and Business Development to reach thousands of schools: 50%

Administrative: 10%
