Our Expenses include both Program Expenses directly related to Our Mission and Management Expenses needed to keep Mission Photography an active 501(c)3 organization.

Program Expenses include research, travel, lodging, meals, film costs, and the cost of printing project books and museum quality framed prints.

Other program expenses are paid for through donations and public support. PayPal expenses for receipt of donations are also considered program expenses, although we have filed as a non-profit organization with PayPal to receive their lowest rate.

Management Expenses include the cost of maintaining bank accounts, compliance with the Internal Revenue Service, state Departments of Revenue and the North Carolina Secretary of State. Office supplies and other expenses necessary to host a web site or other marketing material is also considered management expense.

Our Photographers provide considerable support to Mission Photography through donations of time, money and equipment. All equipment used on location is owned and purchased by the photographer.

The only photography expense reimbursed to a photographer is the cost of film and development used for a Mission Photography project. If a photographer only provides digital images, no costs are reimbursed. If the photographer uses film, they typically have access to scanning equipment and provide digital, scanned images of the negatives.
