Where Does My Ticket Money Go?
There has been a lot of desire for transparency about what happens to people's ticket money. The diagram below is for Recess's expenses in 2017. While each year varies slightly, it is a good reference to better understand Recess's allocations of funds. The vast majority of the event food went to organic and local food providers. Organizer pay for all organizers (including the Founder, Justin Riley) was at $10/hour for off site administrative hours, and $400 (national) and $600 (international) per event worked with travel not paid for. "Utilities" include website and account fees, as well as credit card processing fees. The Majority of the "Other" categories in 2017 were donations to 501c3 organizations doing Racial Justice work.
