I've been working locally with a friend on how to setup a simple bank account for a Korean NGO. There's a bunch of paperwork and a bit of running around in the local adminstrative offices, as well as applications for NGO status, not sure if we qualify, yet. But it's not too complicated. The idea here is to simply create an account for donations, the use of the funds will be decided on by the "Initiatives Council" and all donations and withdraws will be posted online.
As far as where this information will live online, that depends on a few factors we can discuss later with Eric and others. But for now, Jake, I agree completely. This December I was home when Yeom Gi-hyeon passed, I had only met him twice, but still felt like it was necessary to contribute...but there were really no easy avenues for it. Luckily, KOTR has you!
But, still it was one of many straws in the haystack, that has brought us to this idea.
I'll try and spend some time on this next week. Please respond if anyone out there has any personal experience with NGO's or Non-profit like entities here in Korea.
