Renumeration, bounties and rewards: Organizations such as Grassroots Economics Foundation identify employees and community bounty programs to support these efforts based on available funding from grants. Note that this is a growing field and many organizations like the Red Cross have been and are seeking more and more people in this field because of the impacts they see on the ground. Changing the world's economic systems will not be affordable within the world's current economic system. So while traditional national currency funding is sometimes avalaible, don't let that stop you from helping. People and organizations wanting to support these economic systems should interact with them themselves: Accept a CIC or create one redeemable for your own services and donate or exchange it to support this work.
