Pacifica Safety Net (Pacifica Foundation)

by Unsafe At Any Speed ??
Pacifica Safety Net claims long & loudly to have the advice and solutions for Pacifica Foundation's chronic mismanagement -
maybe check out their car, before you have them fix yours
the Protectors Safety Net nonprofit, which is meant to be a holding entity for the “autonomous KPFA” that they hope to establish after breaking up the Pacifica Foundation, has been threatened with dissolution by the California Attorney General’s Registry of Charitable Trusts for ongoing failure to file annual returns. A recent filing for the period November 2020 to October 2021 issued in 2023 shows different numbers than a previous filing for the same period filed in 2022. Revenue has increased by 11%, expenses have decreased by 33%, and miraculously, assets have decreased by 67%. Both forms are signed by Protector Sherry Gendelman. It also bears repeating that a $35,000 “loan” to the Safety Net reported on their founding documents filed with the IRS in 2021 by Gendelman under penalty of perjury, disappeared into thin air, having been neither repaid nor reported as debt or as revenue. See page 33-34 of the Founding Documents. Reports for the November 2021 to October 2022 period are delinquent.
