The corporations will be funded and constructed by the foundation. As such, it is only standard practice that the foundation will have the chairmanship over the board of directors.

The corporate entities will pay taxes in accordance with GAAP, though given the ownership of the foundation, will not be allowed by law to provide cash dividends to the shareholders. “Dividends” therefore, will be deposited in specific accounts within the private hedge fund that have been established for the provision of social services for those voluntarily associating with the foundation and for the support and maintenance of the community itself, in addition to the supportive infrastructure.
