Our expenses.  To pay printing and production costs for 3000 copies of the paper at 16 pages, we need to raise about $450 each month beyond the revenue we receive from our advertiser/supporters.  For the past year of rolling COVID shutdowns, our advertising dollars have been significantly lower. For the second quarter of the year, we didn’t charge downtown businesses who had had to close their doors; while others opted for smaller ads. We are more than ever depending on contributions from readers.

Last year’s contributions.  For 2020-21, donations plus subscriptions brought in about $3000. A grant from the Workers’ Defense Fund covered some of our monthly printing and production shortfall, and allowed for work to upgrade the Works in Progress website.  In addition, and importantly, nearly everyone involved in producing and distributing WIP volunteers their time.  Those same volunteers contribute to our financial viability by covering their own expenses for everything from gas for distributing the paper to a host of miscellaneous charges.

Volunteer contributions make WIP possible.  Nearly everyone involved in producing and distributing WIP volunteers their time, skills and networks to create a quality paper that provides the community with news and views not available otherwise.  Those same volunteers contribute to our financial viability by covering their own expenses for everything from gas for distributing the paper to a host of miscellaneous charges.

If you can’t volunteer, please donate!
