About the Project
Like so many Arts Organizations now, Flying V has entered a time of unprecedented transition. With one full time employee, and another about to begin, our company was about to enter the second quarter of 2020 full of excitement, riding a wave of new programming and outreach initiatives.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have canceled or postponed all of our remaining programs for the next 1-2 months, with the possibility of more being cancelled later, depending on the continued affects of the pandemic on the arts and society. This means that Flying V is preparing to lose out on upwards of $10,000-$20,000 in potential revenue due to COVID-19, with that number only set to increase the longer this pandemic goes on.
While the cancelled programs are sad and disappointing, keeping good spirits and finding a way to pay our staff, both full-time and part-time present our greatest challenges. The awesome Flying V staff continue to work through this hardship, not only keeping the company afloat, but continuing to create and develop programming; priming a successful rebound when the world returns to a sense of normalcy. Even now, our team is working to innovate and find ways to offer content that is accessible to you, our fans, during this time of social distancing.
Flying V made a commitment to its employees and contractors when each signed on to their staff positions to pay them regularly, and that is now at risk. We have approximately $8000 in monthly payroll costs, plus another $2500+ paid quarterly to additional staff contractors, and now is the time when your donation will help keep all of our hard working staff employed during these incredibly trying times. Canceling our programs stalled our earned revenue and severely impacted our income. This match is a phenomenal opportunity to make the most out of your gift, doubling the resources donated to Flying V at a time where we are in need of all the help we can get.
Anything you can give to help keep Flying V operating with its full staff; avoiding furloughs, pay delays, and IOUs, is greatly appreciated. Please help us weather this storm and come out the other side continuing to make art that keeps reminding you why life is worth living even in times of crisis, and how to make the most out of these tough times.
Thank you, and Be Awesome!
