Frequently Asked Questions about ETO

Post by shawn » Mon Oct 26, 2009 10:27 pm

Is EnergyTeachers.org for only high school teachers?
No, the founders were high school teachers, but any educator interested in energy is welcome to our network. Newsletter subscriptions go to educators of all ages, in formal and informal settings.
Is EnergyTeachers.org only for US educators?
No, educators in other nations use our resources and subscribe to our newsletter.
Is EnergyTeachers.org all about green energy, renewable energy, or alternative energy? Does it promote certain technologies?
No. Our mission does not include promotion of energy-technologies. We recognize the interest among students and educators in progressive technologies, and thus much of the bits of information here may be topically related to progressive technologies. But all energy-related topics are relevant to EnergyTeachers.org.
Is EnergyTeachers.org a public charity?
Yes, EnergyTeachers.org is a so-called 501(c)(3) public charity. As such, donations to EnergyTeachers.org are tax-deductible according to US law; we do not lobby on behalf of candidates or specific bills; most of our business is related to science and education, not selling non-related items or services; our financial records are open to the public on the web site or by request; the majority of our financial support comes from a broad public base; and, in return, our funds are spent broadly supporting the public, without discrimination and not to serve specifically the board nor the donors.

How we (don't) make money

How do you make money to pay for everything?
Currently, we don't. We apply for grants, but haven't been part of one for over a year now. We get private donations, but those are low. Private donations this past year were enough to print one of the quarterly newsletters. Would you like to help?
