Q: How can I use the Open Educational Resources on this website?
A: You can:

- as long as you give appropriate credit to the creator and do not sell it, you can adapt, remix, transform, and build upon the material however you like, as long as it is still shared under the same license.
Except where otherwise noted, content on this site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 License.
Q: I’m a business, can I use these resources and share them with my customers?
A: As long as you are not selling the resources or using them for “commercial advantage or monetary compensation” you may use the resources.
Q: I work for a nonprofit organization. Can we adapt and sell the resources to support our cause?
A: No. You can use and adapt them, but you may not use or adapt them for “commercial advantage or monetary compensation.”
Q: I’d like to contribute! What do I need to do?
A: Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you’d like to contribute. If you aren’t sure how you would like to contribute, we’ll send you some ideas.
Q: I’d like to contribute monetarily to Human-Kind OER. Are donations tax deductible?
A: We would love your support. You can send contributions via PayPal.
Human-Kind OER is a project of We Are Human-Kind, a philanthropic LLC. Donations to Human-Kind OER are not tax deductible. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations cannot engage in political campaigning which severely limits an organization’s ability to stand-up for what they believe in. We refuse to give up those rights.
In addition, many individuals never get to see the tax benefits associated with their contributions, because they file their taxes using standard deductions. Donation amounts only come into play when doing an itemized deduction.
Q: Since you are not a nonprofit, can I still tag my donation for a specific use?
A: Absolutely. When mailing or submitting a donation online, place a comment along with your contribution. e.g. #spay/neuter #pethealth #environment. It is important to know that online contributions incur a processing fee from the company processing the donation. That amount is currently 2.9% + .30 cents per transaction.
