V-Day Annual Report 2016 - ONE BILLION RISING: RISE FOR REVOLUTION 1 - Page 63

GUIDING PRINCIPLE V-Day was created by artists and activists and as a result has a unique organizational model. Unlike many global non profits, V-Day does not have a central headquarters or regional offices. Instead, V-Day’s small team work remotely from home bases arou d the world to sustain an online infrastructure that keeps the V-Day network of volunteers activists (one billion strong and growing) linked, informed, and engaged across the world. Through its virtual structure, V-Day is able to keep traditionally high overhead costs very low, enabling it to devote 90 cents of every dollar raised to programmatic work. V-CORE The V-Day Core consists of Founder Eve Ensler and a small number of full and part-time team members. A much larger number of supporters and V-Day activists generously give their time and lend their resources to the movement. Eve Ensler is a volunteer and has never received payment from V-Day for her work a s an author, performer or organizer.
