Each year, we ask God for $17,120 for Brigada’s annual budget. This helps cover the costs for the Google search engine, the websites and servers, the email-sending service (this is $150/month in and of itself), the part-time assistant who publishes the content we write, a few lightweight marketing costs, the anti-spam engine, the ongoing costs to develop apps (the Android app is done and active) and serve up a future for participants like you. Some (maybe half?) of our participants work in places in which they are unlikely to give major gifts, so many give smaller gifts of $15-$20 per year. But we’re grateful for each of those gifts. Others live and work in places in which they can give more — maybe $100 is the standard “True Fan of Brigada” gift. A few have been blessed by God in special ways. As a means of praising God, they have given gifts of $500, $1000, and $2000. Either way, we only ask for exactly $17,120 each year. If more were to come in (it’s never happened), we would apply it toward the next year.
