FINANCIAL & ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT August 2016

We strongly believe in financial transparency, you will always see where your money goes. Here is this month’s report and updates.

We are now reaching over 17 million viewers nationwide through our partnerships with other networks.   Thank you to a new subscriber for a donation of $30.00 this month.

As of today we are now in the negative  almost -$35,000

We have a bill coming up soon, and if we can raise $15,000.00 we will keep the network going and the on going projects. We know with you, we can do this.

Please click here to make a donation of any amount 25, 50, 100 or more, thank you.

We are still shifting some focus on other Hispanic-related issues and not so much just on heirs. When the heirs start getting involved more, and donate or join us, we will pick up more tools and help for this group of people.

We are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to meet beyond our goals and be able to put extra money into litigation, legislation and other measures that are worthy and significant to our causes and not a waste of time or resources. Our staff and supporters believe this strongly.

Database project update: This will really be beneficial to everyone that is a heir. To help in ancestry, surveys, and find their unclaimed mineral resources.   We are working with representatives and TLA to possibly integrate this with the comptrollers office.

We hope we can encourage you to get active, or join us as a paid member or support us monthly and help volunteer.  Thanks for all of your support. the VOC team.

We are now reaching over 17 million viewers nationwide through our partnerships with other networks.  We apologize that there was no financial report posted since Aug 2015, but that is because we have had no donations since May 15, 2015.

As of today we are now in the negative -$27,384.00

We have a bill coming up soon, and if we can raise $15,000.00 we will keep the network going and the on going projects. We know with you, we can do this.

FINANCIAL & ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT AUG 2015

We strongly believe in financial transparency, you will always see where your money goes. Here is this month’s report and updates.

When you have non Spanish Land Grant Heirs, but business people who are enthused about this project look at statistics, it is difficult to keep them enthused when you spent $23,545.00 to get it going and keep it going and only received $148.00 from heirs.  Add to this the traffic is high on the website, but in social networks and with members we are seeing an increase.   Our subscribers are increasing as always which is the only good news, and our current members want to see us keep going. As you can see we are not taking much money, and don’t know how long we can survive like this.  We are Negative -$13,384.00 in the red this is not good and it is only a growing deficit. The last donation was in April 2015.

We have a bill coming up soon, and if we can raise $1500.00 we will keep the network going.

We are still shifting some focus on other Hispanic related issues and not so much just on heirs. When the heirs start getting involved more, and donate or join us, we will pick up this agenda.  However we still have active causes and projects going, we hope to energize to a sleeping group of people.

We are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to meet beyond our goals and be able to put extra money in to litigation, legislation and other measures that are worthy and significant to our causes and not a waste of time or resources. Our staff and supporters believe this strongly. This is why they initially invested $13,012.92 to get the project up and running.

We did write about our database project, which would really be beneficial to everyone that is a heir.  Who knows maybe we could sell it to the comptrollers office to use.  I doubt that is likely but it would enable a person to find their unclaimed mineral funds.

We hope we can encourage you to get active, or join us as a paid member or support us monthly and help volunteer.  Thanks for all of your support. the VOC team.  

Please note the first section under the date is nothing to do with finances, it is the number of people, (statistics) that we reach out to, or that are involved or following us.  Also please note the first GL Memos reflect what our founders/staff members contributed to start this project.

FINANCIAL & ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT JULY 2015

We strongly believe in financial transparency, you will always see where your money goes. Here is this month’s report and updates.

The last donation was in April.

We are going to shift some focus on other Hispanic related issues and not so much just on heirs. When the heirs start getting involved more, and donate or join us, we will pick up this agenda.  However we still have active causes and projects going, we hope to energize to a sleeping group of people.

FINANCIAL & ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT MAY 2015

Although we have lost money after we started we will stay here as long as we can. However when you look at this financial report, only $148.97 was received by members/followers.  Over $13,000 was invested by the founders.  As you can see we are not taking much money, and don’t know how long we can survive like this. We strongly believe in financial transparency, you will always see where your money goes.

We think we are heading in the right direction, and we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to meet beyond our goals and be able to put extra money in to litigation, legislation and other measures that are worthy and significant to our causes and not a waste of time or resources.

FINANCIAL & ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT FEB 2015

Although we have lost money after we started we will stay here as long as we can. We planned for a slow gradual continual growth rate. If we have to take drastic measures and cut all expenses except hosting, we could survive for a number of years.

But our growth, and our causes and projects will take more money and what expenses we have monthly is minimal compared to other sites working for such worthy causes.  We think we are heading in the right direction, and we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to meet beyond our goals and be able to put extra money in to litigation, legislation and other measures that are worthy and significant to our causes and not a waste of time or resources. Our staff and supporters believe this strongly. This is why they initially invested $13,012.92 to get the project up and running.

HEIRS – our financial and accountability report

by John Valdez

We’ve got to stay together and maintain unity and we see that there is some confusion out there among the heirs and descendants and other networks.   Let us rise up tonight with a greater readiness. Let us stand with a greater determination. And let us move on in these powerful days, these days of challenge to make America what it ought to be. We have an opportunity to make America a better nation. And I want to thank God, once more, for allowing me to be here with you.

Our Income statement: 11/15/2014-1/27/2015  We want to give you an update on our income, for those who have supported us; To date we have received a whopping $66.00 from Paid Members and $25 in donations  from supporters to continue this network (besides that of our own staff members).   We are not out to make money, only to help this network to continue and to fund future causes.  We have free members who join and other members who are following us and actively promoting unity and getting involved in our causes.   I would personally like to thank those people who are supporting us in any way they can possible, this will only help our causes to go forward.

Our Costs:


  • $50.00 per month for our high level of internet hosting for our website
  • $500.00 per month we pay a website firm to maintain the site and social networks and support bugs
  • $500.00 per month for SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
  • $1.00-$5.00 per download file for the secure download service.
  • $25.00 per year for the domain

 = $ 1050.00 per month to maintain the website

not including downloads and domain registrations, or high level support issues

As you can see we are not making any money, we (the founders and staff members) are pumping money into the project until it will maintain itself. The founders have invested over $13,000.00 to start up this project, out of their own wallets.

We are not compensating ourselves: We as a team, have contributed much money to get this project started, out of our own personal expenses. We are not here to make money as you can see without our own staff, this site would not be active. The monies we receive are maintained in a separate account for the sole purpose of keeping the network internet hosting active, and extra money go towards funding the causes and making this network (website) better. If we ever get an excess then would would invest that money into litigation and efforts for the Spanish Land Grant Heirs.

Our friends are people who have found us through social media and through others who have invited them.  We have not made one campaign asking friends of other networks to join our network.  We also have a skilled team of professionals working to keep his network strong.

We are non-competitive:  We are not in competition to any other persons website or projects, and we don’t know why people think we are. Maybe because we are rapidly growing with decedents and Spanish land grant heirs that want to unite, and want to make a difference ?    If we were in competition with another persons website it would be obvious and we would not invite our members, followers to check with their attorney, or to donate money to their attorney’s litigation, or get their group information from their attorney. We would not encourage them to start their own causes and make a voice for change.  If you will search our site we have repeatedly said WE ARE NOT ATTORNEY’s.

here is how we are different:

  • we are accountable every quarter with our financial statement and where the money goes to
  • we are not here to make money it costs us $1,050 a month or more to maintain the network, we make on average $35 / month in donations + registrations
  • we have no hidden fees 99% of our members are free members, unless you want to become a pro member and really get active, for $20.00 a year , this three times lower in cost, and it enables us to stay active and get the members involved, or if you want to support the network to help us maintain the website
  • we allow members to get involved with our causes and their own projects,
  • we are not worried about competition, we want people to get active and use their voice, if you have an idea, do it, start it – if you want, we can help you promote it
  • we have multiple campaigns and causes going on all the time and more to come
  • we give you daily news and updates
  • we allow users to make comments on our multiple social networks and website,
  • we are not afraid of allowing people to express themselves and or addressing issues
  • we don’t intimidate or threat people who want to do their own projects
  • we do not slander or falsely accuse members or heirs
  • we are the only network promoting unity among all of the heirs
  • we have a growing team of professionals, legal, journalists, business, marketing and media
  • we have a network full of vast resources

We are not misleading – we are not here to mislead anyone!  All of our information is found through the same information that legal professionals get their information. For example, the Texas railroad commission, historians, and other trusted sources, and any of our posts were published to clear things up, are thoroughly consulted with experts.

You must decide (who is on your side): We did read some of the information our (family of descendants and supporters ) are posting, and that is true you must decide who you want to follow.

No mis truths here: As far as mis-truths, there are many of those being represented on the internet by other sites.  Only God will judge the people who continue to lie about things.  We are here to promote the truth.

Who are we affiliated with?  Only those people and organizations that you will find on our website who have asked us to publish information about them and for them.

Here is some quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King

” Survival demands that we grapple with problems – Martin Luther King .. And also in the human rights revolution, if something isn’t done, and in a hurry, to bring the ..peoples of the world out of their long years of poverty, their long years of hurt and neglect, the whole world is doomed. Now, I’m just happy that God has allowed me to live in this period, to see what is unfolding. …Now, what does all of this mean in this great period of history? It means that we’ve got to stay together. We’ve got to stay together and maintain unity. ”

Let us rise up tonight with a greater readiness. Let us stand with a greater determination. And let us move on in these powerful days, these days of challenge to make America what it ought to be. We have an opportunity to make America a better nation. And I want to thank God, once more, for allowing me to be here with you.
