How is a musical group able to continue this long (10 years!) without charging venues for its
performances and without outside sponsorship? Any donations received at the door of an event
WME has participated in are taken in by the church, venue, etc. The funds are used for
whatever the event is designed to benefit. Occasionally, some events elect to
give WME an honorarium to help defer expenses.


Initially, WME expenses were handled solely through the donation of time and resources by its Director.
Then an outside loan was secured, and paid back, from first CD sales and occasional small honorariums.
This enables the group to be currently self-sustaining from CD sales.
Self-sustaining means meeting expenses, which include no salaries or other financial compensation
to anyone, ever, and continuing to be able to release recordings.


This structure has enabled us to continue all these years without external sponsorship by any
religious group, government, or the like, so we can maintain our actual and ideological independence,
thereby providing a true work of “common spirit” rather than promoting any
sectarian, corporate or government agenda.


WME's Director:

 WME's Director has donated thousands of hours and has personally paid for many expenses of WME
over the years, without any financial gain to him - he has never been financially compensated.
It is his commitment to the promotion of world-wide peace that maintains us through thick and thin.


WME will continue to support, and perform for a limited number of benefit events.
However, to stay viable, we are also now charging for our performances in some situations.
No one – musicians, support staff, or Director - receives any financial compensation whatsoever,
as our endeavors are totally volunteer and not-for-profit.
