Organizational Structure

Operational Independency

Our work as BEYOND Tomorrow does not support specific political or religious beliefs and the interest of any specific individual or group. BEYOND Tomorrow is operated by building consensus among the board of directors along with its mission and values.

Diversity of Funds

BEYOND Tomorrow is funded by donations and grants from countless individuals and organizations who support our philosophy and activities. We are soliciting a wide range of donations without relying on a specific source of fund, and believe that those donations are the symbol of the “feelings” of those who have resonated with BEYOND Tomorrow’s mission and values.
