2018 BURNING MAN EXPENSES
While Burning Man was once a scrappy little desert gathering, it has become a multifaceted professional operation. Today, Burning Man Project produces the nation’s largest permitted event on public land, and supports an extensive global network of events, artists and civic initiatives. This is a full accounting of 2018 expenses. It includes year-round operations for the event in Black Rock City and our off playa programs. This chart is a direct representation of information found in our 2018 Form 990. Programming expenses (e.g. Burning Man Arts or Burners Without Borders) are spread across many categories. For a detailed description of program areas and 2018 accomplishments in each, read our Annual Report. About Expense Types: The IRS groups nonprofit expenses into three categories: Programming, Administration, and Fundraising. For more details on what goes in to each of these, read our FAQ.
