PROFIT&LOSS | GRANTS | PHOTOGRAPHERS

Principles: Killi-Data is a non-profit venture, nested since 2012 in Killi-Data International (K-D-I), a non profit association.

A modest subscription fee for access to member's section is kindly requested to cover direct costs and, when accounts are equilibrated (since 2005, the accounts have been equilibrated for the first time after launch of the website in 2001 and all financial contributions have been transferred as grants -not solely benefits, then with too much enthusiasm too many grants were distributed and today the accounts are negative):

  • to fund oviparous Cyprinodontiformes (Killifish) research by young scientists, in Institutions
  • to fund their first collecting trip by young aquarists from killifish associations, 
  • to gratify photographers who have very much cooperated to the data base (but all agreed to transfer their moneys to grants, see below),

 

Since the availability of Killi-Data online in 2001, 8 grants funding 7 young researchers and 1 aquarist-biologist for his first collecting trip (Total: 3100 €, i.e. today around 4000 US Dollars, see below for details of funded persons and the published outcomes to-date) 

 

To donate money (only in Euro currency) to Killi-Data, 2 options.

  • send money electronically to the editor directly via PAYPAL, click on button 'send money online', then select country for 'I'm paying someone in' (France), then select currency (Euro), then select option 'Friends and Family', (next step) 'to' [ Email address ] by using the hereafter crypted electronic address (no-reply) in the Paypal website :
  • send cash money as bank notes to the present editor in a registered envelope at the postal address, Jean H. Huber, 7 Bd Flandrin, 75116 Paris, France

 

Advertising in the welcome page will be encouraged from the pet fish companies to add new cash to the funds. If interested, please CONTACT the Editor.
Pending these, Google ads are placed to finance IT development programmes.

 

All benefits are redistributed, no financial benefit is rewarded to the author/editor (see MISSION statement).

Financial situation (2001 - to date) : healthy and positive !

1 Euro (€) equals approximately 1.30 US Dollar (US$) in March 2013. Financial accounts from 01.01.01 to last update.

Outcome situation regarding the distributed grants

legend Following the foundation of Killi-Data International, the non-profit association that nest the assets of Killi-Data, on May 24. 2012, the outcome of the grants has been searched to report to the authorities about the money spent by the association ; the following report shows the list of grants recipients, their projects and their publication related to the grant.
The guiding principles for the grants are double :

  • Individual researchers or aquarist collectors have been offered a variable amount of money (300 to 600 Euro, each) based on their needs and for aquarists collectors based on a DOSSIER 
  • No obligation to the funded person except producing a publication on the theme with acknowledgements to Killi-Data.

In the hereafter table the allocated grants are listed the name of the funded person, the theme of the grant, the amount of the grant, the year of the grant outcome (or if no report yet, the year of allocation), and the published reference of the report acknowledging the grant

Financial situation regarding contributing photographers with color pictures-slides

 

  • Individual photographers who gave more than 20 slides to the website were initially offered 20% of the benefits, pro-rata to their contribution :
    However, very much in line with the ethics of Killi-Data, all photographers have accepted to permanently transfer their moneys to grants ! 
    Warmest thanks to each of them (listed hereafter). As a result the percentages of redistributions are amended and shared only between young researchers for a research on killies and young aquarists for their firts collecting trip
  • To-day the issue is not anymore pending because only digital pictures are requested (and freely sent by the photographers)
