Where Funds Go!
The Sound of Hope was created exclusively from Indie Gospel member content. The artists waived their royalties by contract. The production work was donated by the network founder Ken Rich and by E. Pettersen who was one of the artists and a marketing expert. Mastering was supplied by another artist Gary Weldon Sr.
The only cost was actually stamping, packaging, and shipping the CD's from the Disc Makers facility.
At around the time this project was being finalized, a partnership was formed with WAAOM and they were initially allowed to process the funds for their charity efforts. Enough came in to cover the production costs almost immediately but not much thereafter.
Later, Indie Gospel dissolved it's partnership with WAAOM because of differences of opinion on how WAAOM should be structured, spend its funds, and make staffing decisions. Now any funds that come in from sales or donations are sent to Childcare Worldwide.
So far, since changing charities, $25.68 USD has come in due to digital sales through CD Baby. This has been sent to Childcare Worldwide for their "Where Most Needed" program (receipt attached).
Thanks for your support.
