As a nonprofit, we work to develop a variety of funding mechanisms. Grants are an essential strategy, but our goals are to be diverse and flexible in our sponsorship and patronage. Private philanthropists have the ability to quickly enable essential organizational functions. With appropriate support, we deploy the resources and talent of a skilled staff and other appropriate personnel and execute the mission of the organization.
Graphic novels have a fixed set of costs when connected to the expertise and resources of WBP. Our goal is to pass credit and appropriate compensation for graphic illustration. 60% of the cost per issue goes to artist compensation.
Through the collaborations we build within schools to engage students in the creation and development of these important historical graphic novels.
Through the dedicated commitment to the educational standards and assessment laid out in our strategic plan.
Each area of graphic publication has certain roles. Patrons and sponsors who support the mission may do so in specific ways, as it aligns to their own priorities. They can also sponsor the entire cost of a particular issue. While costs may vary slightly in accordance with the issue, we estimate certain costs to be consistent and are happy to discuss these costs further.
