THE SCOOP ON DAAC FINANCES
The DAAC has been fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas since 2014. This allows us the ability to not only apply for select grants, but also offer our donors tax-deductible receipts for their gifts. Through our previous crowdfunding efforts, we have a chunk of money that we are trying to save for emergencies. Over the years, people have been generous by donating their time, money and resources to keep the DAAC alive. For that we are incredibly grateful!
Due to the ongoing pandemic, and also simply for the safety of our attendees & performers, we are continuing to choose limited-capacity shows. Unfortunately, this safety measure only allows us to book to half our capacity, which limits revenue coming in to both performers and the DAAC itself. Our monthly expenses are roughly $500 higher than our projected income due to being in a higher rent space + operating costs. Since we are a not-for-profit organization and NOT a 501c3, the DAAC has no other overhead for paying employees or an Executive Director. At our former space on Division, we barely made enough each month to keep the lights on and often had to borrow money from generous supporters to pay bills. In our new space, our goal is to fuel the space with more sustainable gifts throughout the year. We are truly a community run space powered by volunteer hours and YOUR dollars.
