We created a budget based on estimated expenses which include: mechanical licenses for up to 5 songs, fees for four musicians on 10 songs, CD duplication fees, 25 hours of studio time per song, and all Kickstarter and Amazon fees. It adds up fast.
Unfortunately, no. While we plan to do much of our work under the auspices of a non-profit organization, Wings Point Ministries, this fundraising campaign was registered under our individual names. That precludes it from be tax-deductible. Sorry.
Unfortunately, no. Kickstarter payments are processed through Amazon. You must use a credit card to make a pledge. Once the goal is met, everyone's card is charged at the same time. But, in effect, you have the chance to make installment payments since you'll be paying on your credit card. You'll just have interest to deal with.
