The Church of the Joy OF EXISTENCE is looking for financial partners - private persons and companies from all over the world - who agree with our ideas and want to accomplish something measurable for others and for the world, by helping to build a worldwide church, and sharing its exceptional potential with others.
We expect financial support from our Financial Partner (and if possible - organizational) in the areas chosen by the Partner, in the following field:
The above mentioned areas in the first period of our activity will take place in the territory of Poland, while in following periods they will exceed Polish territory.
In return, we can offer the Financial Partner a chance to participate in an exclusive project aimed at building a new, ultimately worldwide, philosophical and religious organization - a new Church, a new philosophy and religion.
Our action - its spirit, range, and physical scale - goes far beyond the opportunities available to investors in everyday life. We offer not only gaining profit, but also a feeling of fulfillment - by fulfilling your existence - as an individual appointed by God to live here and now. As the JE Church says: "it is not until we share ourselves with others that we are able to fully blossom in the joy of life".
In case of receiving the status of a Financial Partner, for those who are interested, we will provide the possibility of participating in the Council of the Church, where the Partner will have an actual impact on all activities undertaken by the Church.
Additionally, in the case of investing in the business activity of the Church, the Financial Partner, apart from the philosophical fulfillment we offer financial profit as well.
Ad. A: Assistance in the developing the JE Church through financing the advertising campaigns propagating our philosophical and religious ideas and support in financing the necessary team of employees responsible for promotional activities.
Nowadays in order to succeed in the field of so-called (marketing) "brand awareness", it is necessary to form precise, well-planned, and well-conducted marketing. When it comes to our Church, we want to collectively popularize: both the philosophical ideas of the JE Church and the institution of the Church itself, offering the world a new, philosophical and religious value. In this case, the Financial Partner supports the funds for the Church's popularization and development activities. The Partner can also actively take part in creating and introducing the development plan.
Ad. B: Assistance in creating and up-to-date functioning of the business in low-risk investment areas..
The JE Church has two joint business goals (financed by the Church's economic activity). The first is the need for physical self-support of the Church as a globally operating organization and ensuring the self-financing of the main Church activities. The second goal - equally important - is helping local communities in places where the Church will function, by creating opportunities for starting and running their own business.
Let's start with a short description of the second goal:
When it comes to our program, we want to promote the business ideas of local communities - especially in the developing and third world countries - and help them create local cooperatives, that will enable them to generate income (through self-employment and participation in profits), by limiting and counteracting the negative consequences of capitalist globalization. The JE Church plans to participate (in the area of the physical presence of the Church) in organization, financing, launching and current management of cooperative economic activity (production, trade, services) - activities conducted according to the established and tested models in selected market areas. The local church will encompass 30% of shares in investments coming from small local investors. In exchange, the Church will provide the know-how, help in organizing, managing and supervising the business. The Church's financial department will also be responsible for these activities by delegating their specialists to local structures. A minimum half of the local Church's profits (15%) from this will be devoted to the current financial assistance to members of the local community who have no financial means to take part in the investment. The rest (max 15%) will be spent on maintaining the Church itself.
It should be noted that the JE Church intends to start its business school in Poland, both paid and with a scholarship system, also educating the managers from countries where the above-described business activity will be conducted.
When it comes to the first goal:
The JE Church, as an independent and sustainable organization, must support itself. We cannot, but also do not want to, rely only on our followers and sympathizers, asking them for financial support every time we need something. Funds received from donors will eventually be allocated to the Foundation of the Joy of Existence, which is aimed at supporting the worldwide human idea of helping others and support important help projects, including particular special purpose foundations.
The Church, through dependent subsidiaries, wants to co-run a business, which will be a low-risk activity. Together with our development, we are thinking of several business opportunities in Poland and Germany, such as:
At the same time, taking advantage of the business opportunities and personal contacts of the founders of the Church, we are thinking of developing export-trade agency between Poland / Europe and Ghana / Africa. We are considering export to Africa and wholesale distribution of food, construction materials, and agricultural resources.
There are a lot of opportunities to run a business, but you need a lot of financial support, which we ask for.
In the case of investments aimed at completing the first business objective:
The Financial Partner of our Church (or Partners), covers the entire required investment by becoming a shareholder of the majority-created company; the 30% stake will be held by a company owned by the Church. Within a precise period of time, the Church will also be able to buy part or all of the Partner's shares at a fixed price, guaranteeing the Partner an adequate return on investment.
Ad. C. Assistance in setting up and up-to-date functioning of the Foundation for the Joy of Existence.
The Foundation of the Joy of Existence is planning to support a universal, global idea / principle of helping others and support important aid projects, including particular special purpose foundations.
By propagating the idea of helping and sharing our potential with others (the most important idea of the JE Church), the Foundation intends to collect funds from individual donors, transferring them to specially chosen goals - both current and local, as well as wider, ideological goals.
The Financial Partner will be responsible for the support of functioning of the Foundation and its statutory tasks until it reaches financial liquidity and will be able to support itself.
