Frequently asked questions
Is The4Network a nonprofit?
Yes! The4Network is a nonprofit. We are incorporated in Delaware as THE4NETWORK FOUNDATION.
Why are there so many different projects of The4Network?
The4Network operates a huge variety of projects which work on different goals. It may get unclear if everything had the same name, so different projects have different names which relate to their individual missions. However, each project is governed entirely by T4N, and all projects focus on delivering their help through the direct help method.
What is direct help? Why is it important?
Direct help is the movement started by The4Network - a movement which we believe should and is going global. Direct help is the concept of enabling people worldwide to have a direct impact on the world - whether that is the lives of others or the preservation of our environment. The4Network enables people to become direct helpers - whether they have one hour per week or days and days on end - thereby taking away the middleman of donations and money and replacing it with people who are willing to help and want to impact the world positively.
What are the main branches of The4Network?
The main branches of The4Network fall under education, fun, the environment and innovation.
