Mission

The mission of Capitalists for Shared Income is simple: better share the abundant wealth produced by Capitalism. We believe that Capitalism is the best economic system. Capitalism efficiently allocates resources and has proven very effective at lifting people out of extreme poverty.  Capitalism does not prevent other injustices from becoming pervasive in society, and may at times exacerbate these injustices, but these injustices are not inherent per se to the economic system of Capitalism. What Capitalism does not do well is put limits on extreme income and wealth inequality, which are inherent to the economic system of Capitalism. Political systems can be used to limit these inequalities, but often fail. Thus, C4SI believes that Capitalism must self-regulate itself and find a way to better share income with its most vulnerable constituents or else risk falling out of favor with the population it so greatly serves. This requires the individual Capitalists who have benefitted the most from Capitalism to more willingly share their income & wealth.

 

The wealthy are not cheap.  The United States has a long history of philanthropy that has and does benefit society in numerous ways. But, too often, the charity of the wealthy is too dispersed to garner the goodwill it deserves from the general population. C4SI serves as a means for those who have benefited from Capitalism to collectively & purposely give back through an organization committed to income sharing via cash supplements, and to do so in a loud & proud way.

What We Do

C4SI collects & manages donations for two ends:

 

1) Immediate distribution to existing 501(c)(3) public charities that are dealing with food, housing and economic insecurity in the form of $ecurity Cards, pre-paid debit cards. We believe that cash equivalents are often the best support for someone demonstrating hardship, and offer freedom and self-determination to those in need. This type of donation is meant for anyone feeling fortunate and thankful enough to give back to those in our society on the edge. No donation is too small!

 

2) Long-term funding of the Capitalists Shared Income Endowment which serves as a legacy to the Capitalist system that will fund not only the operational cost of C4SI, but also fund $ecurity Cards to our 501(c)(3) distribution partners in perpetuity.

Why C4SI?

There are tens of thousands of public charities across the United States doing great work helping millions of people.  Why should one choose to support C4SI? C4SI has two focuses:

 

A) to collect donations from like minded people who believe in Capitalism as an economic system but who also believe that a lack of guardrails on the system have led to income & wealth being too inequitably distributed and want to share the good fortune they personally have garnered from the Capitalist system and give back to those who have garnered less.

B) to provide the less fortunate with cash supplements in order to bestow on them both freedom and self-determination in their time of critical need.

 

If you are one of the like-minded mentioned in A), and believe in the power of B), join us.
