Aims of the Foundation for the Study of Happiness
Members of the board receive no pay.
The foundation monitors the current availability and development of the World Database of Happiness on basis of yearly reports provided by the founding director of the database who is still in charge. As yet there was no necessity to act for the foundation, hence the policy is to remain informed while preserving the funds that may be required to keep the World Database of Happiness available after the time of its founder.
The foundation depends on donations. Its start capital was a donation by the founder of the World Database of Happiness. The current capital of the foundation is 14.000 Euro.
