THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! We have raised over $12k! And there's still time to order CDs, t-shirts, and posters!

68 backers and counting! Thanks to all who pledged and have continued to support us even after we reached our goal!

We reached our goal of $8,750 with 4 days left to spare!!!!!!

You might ask, "So is it done?"

This answer is, "Yes!!!" And also, "Not quite ..."

We now have our eyes set on our first stretch goal, which is for the establishing The ViOS Project as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. While not quite as exciting as producing an album, this is actually incredibly crucial for the long-term future of ViOS. This will allow us to seek alternative means of sustainable funding (such as grants) and will necessitate the creation of a board of directors. We look forward to both of these additions, particularly the latter, meaning extra shoulders to share the enormous workload of running The ViOS Project. Here are some things that are involved in keeping The ViOS Project alive:

– General Management
– Recruitment
– Booking
– Advertising
– Social Media
– Graphic Design
– Web Design
– Musical Compositions and Arrangements
– Recording
– Mixing
– Editing
– Mastering
– Video
– And of course, performing ;)

Up until, all these tasks are handled by only two people! Don't get us wrong, we love the mission and love doing all the work necessary to keep it alive!!! But to have a board that could help shoulder some of the responsibilities would be amazing! So what costs are needed in order to become a non-profit organization?

– $99 for Articles of Incorporation
– $400 or $850 for IRS non-profit application fee
– $350 – $1,400 for professional services to help us navigate this path to non-profit status
– Any other fees accrued from Government filing fees, banking fees, other professional services, or hidden costs (as there always are!!)

So it could be as low $850, or as much as $2,350 and above. We will just have to start down the path and see where it leads us. So let's keep up the momentum and see where it leads us! Onward and upward! Back @TheViOSProject today!
