Dear Friends of Industrial Hemp and Marijuana,
We have partnered with marijuanahempstocks.com we believe this partnership is necessary for our survival. Hemp and marijuana investments are expected to experience huge growth over the next 20 years. We wanted to knock two birds out with one stone, by partnering with marijuanahempstocks.com we can stay funded to focus on our mission while also giving new investors information.
How has Naihc funded its extensive efforts and progress to date?
We’ve done it on a shoestring.
NAIHC board members have contributed time, money and other resources.
We haven’t received the corporate contributions that would normally flow to a new industry because of the hesitancy in the boardrooms about the “marijuana” issue. Instead we’ve relied primarily on member dues and the help of two extraordinary philanthropic entities.
- The Turner Foundation (yes, Ted the media mogul) sees industrial hemp as good for American farming and forests, and recognizes that its superior fiber characteristics make hemp the renewable fiber of choice.
- The Wallace Genetic Foundation (yes, Henry, the plant breeder, Secretary of Agriculture and Vice President under Franklin Roosevelt) sees industrial hemp as a vital component of sustainable farming.
Presently NAIHC runs without staff. It is a board-directed and a board-operated organization. The NAIHC board is quite a network in itself and has the capacity to succeed where previous efforts have failed. We have now
The NAIHC coalition that includes the likes of Woolsey, Anderson, Turner and Nader is a coalition that can’t be ignored. That’s why NAIHC has made the breakthroughs we have.
To get where we are today, the NAIHC has spent nearly every dime it has.
The media relations work cost about half of our approximately $120,000 annual budget. The rest went primarily for travel, conference calls, printing, and our annual conference.
In the coming months, we want to do more media work, more advocacy, more public education, and to build on this great momentum. But we need money to do it. The foundations have been critical to our funding, but they can only do so much. NAIHC must rely on membership dues to get the job done.
The NAIHC has made huge breakthroughs. With your help we can do the necessary follow-through to see industrial hemp again planted on US soil.
