A festival (actually 2 festivals with Kings day) costs a lot of money. We need to pay the guesthouse, Radhadesh kitchen, Buses, Kings day expenses and lots more. The annual budget is around 22000 Euro and we have to cover this by fundraising and charging you an accommodation and a festival fee. Here is a summary of the highest expenses:
- Prasadam* : € 7500
- Accommodation*: € 7100
- Buses: € 3700 (2 buses. 3 buses would be € 5550)
- Kingsday: € 1850
- VP Lunch: € 1300
- VG Gifts (books) : € 700
- Flowers and decorations: € 300
* Calculated for 200 persons
Our dream is to offer you a totally free festival! In 2016 you gave enough donation to cover at least the prasadam and buses so the festival fee was dropped. Maybe in 2017 we can reach our dream target?! You can help by giving donations. Click here to donate.
We invite you to record a short (30s-1min) video offering for the VP festival. We will assemble the video recordings and show it during the festival!
