The S.P.I.R.A.L Foundation is a registered non-profit corporation in the state of California, Federal Tax ID Number 95-4740304 and has received tax exempt status under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.


 

The S.P.I.R.A.L. Foundation's operations in Vietnam and Nepal are inspired by the principle of "Aid from within the Country". Since 1999, The S.P.I.R.A.L. Foundation has financed humanitarian aid projects with the proceeds generated by income producing handicraft workshops. Currently 1000 Vietnamese and Nepalese are employed with fair wages based on an hourly rate and not on piece-work.

All net proceeds from the handicraft sales are returned to Vietnam and Nepal to fund primary health care, medical and educational projects, giving to those involved in the production process a sense of pride that comes by helping and sustaining many others, in even greater need than themselves. Members of all The Spiral Foundation Workshops have an active role in the allocation and monitoring of all funds generated by proceeds from the sales of The Spiral Foundation Gift Line.

Currently more than 180 gift items designed by The Spiral Foundation are produced in Vietnam and Nepal and successfully selling worldwide.

All items are produced with a consciousness towards the environment. Discarded materials are often used for or incorporated in our gift line. All items are produced with a consciousness towards the preservation and the revival of the local handicraft traditions.

Full transparency in all accounting with all workshop members, with all beneficiaries of the humanitarian aid funding and with all involved in the resale market.
