In addition to maintaining and increasing a capital fund for the future development of Subud, the Foundation makes grants to Subud groups around the world to assist them in purchasing and improving their own Subud house. A smaller sum is available to assist with environmental improvements to existing Subud properties, referred to as Eco-grants. In addition, the Muhammad Subuh Foundation supports international helpers’ travel to groups, and funds the international archives including the preservation of Bapak’s and Ibu Siti Rahayu’s talks. Also, if it has the means, it supports the activities of the ‘wing’ organizations.
Within our Subud organizational structure, the Foundation is not considered to be a ‘wing’, but rather a support organization that is a complementary partner to the World Subud Association that works towards the same mission. It is both a separate legal corporation in the U.S.A. as well as a charitable entity registered as a nonprofit organization with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the taxation division in US government.
