Veterans Yoga Project, an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization, strives to maintain the honor and commitment our veterans have sworn to uphold. Program development and management, teacher training, and organizational expenses are covered by funds raised by grants, fundraising activities, and earned income from Mindful Resilience trainings and contract yoga services. The charts below show our revenue sources and income disbursement. For additional financial information, please contact our CFO Michael Calogero.
We currently offer three types of programs:
Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery teacher training
Yoga classes offered to veterans (taught by VYP teachers)
All yoga classes and retreats are free or nominal cost to our veterans. We offer partial scholarships for veterans to attend our yoga teacher trainings. These programs account for 86% of our expenses.
Veterans Yoga Project is, in part, a virtual organization. With that, we have expenses that aid in our effectiveness and reach. VYP's professional fees are for: web site administration, marketing and social media costs, promotional materials, software costs, liability insurance, and travel. All costs are allocated between Programs and Operations.
Veterans Yoga Project relies largely on volunteer support. We have one full-time employee (our Executive Director) and several hourly contracted staff. Although we strive to pay our teachers to teach veterans’ classes in the community, a majority volunteer their time.
Public contributions and Grants: 63%
Earned Income/Program Services 36%
Merchandise and Other: 1%
