Where does your hard-earned money go? If you donate, then you have a right to know. The BEA exists because of you and the funds you provide to us on a daily basis.
Transparency is key for trust and communication. Yet due to the nature of our legal, political and scientific endeavors, it can often be a conflict of interest to share all the knitty gritty details that goes on behind the scenes without upsetting a politician or breaching a disclosure agreement. It is something we are working on and continues to be a balancing act for us. Nevertheless, we are happy that the kratom community stands by us through thick and thin while we do our best to keep kratom legal for Americans.
Without further adieu, please take a look at our financial statements for 2016/2015 to see where your donations go
