We’ve put together a spreadsheet with all of our costs for the year, so you can see where we’ve spent the donations we’ve received. We often get asked about how we fundraise to put on the festival. Take a look and find out!
All the money we’ve raised this year and in previous years (2011, 2012) has either gone to our bands, workshop leaders, or to our chosen charity, which this year was National Ugly Mugs.
You’ll notice that this year we had some extra financial help from the Hidden Perspectives project, part of the Biblical Studies Department at the University of Sheffield. We helped to organise the Hidden Perspectives festival at the Workstation on June 1st, and were paid for our time. This meant that we didn’t have to worry so much about organising fundraisers to pay for our own festival.
Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about our finances or fundraising. There’s also more information about how we pay for our events in our new LaDIYfest FAQ.
