But only almost! I can claim Effi as an exception, as we
receive money from neither government nor businesses.

(Our funding comes from membership fees, individual donations
and T-shirt sales. I don't claim we'd unconditionally reject
donations from businesses should it come to that, but so
far none has been offered nor have we solicited any.
As for the government, money flows to the opposite
direction as we pay taxes for our meagre T-shirt sales.)
