From day one, Selva Beat has fought hard to compensate staff, illustrators, and writers for their creative and academic efforts on both the web and in print. Each issue is the culmination of 30+ people's hard work and we'd like to reward that effort to the best of our ability.
But in all honesty, it's hard to find enough palm-oil free and vegan sponsors to cover the cost of our operations. Most of the brands that we support are small start-ups with no marketing budget whatsoever. As a result, we are almost entirely self-funded. So, donations are a huge help to us, giving us the budget we need to create the magazine you love to read.
You can give any amount or choose from the sponsorship packages below:
Sponsor an Issue
Each issue we make costs about $3,000 to create (before printing costs). That number includes compensation for staff, models, writing, photography, illustration, recipe testing, and miscellaneous costs such as shipping loan items back to designers. It may not seem like a lot, but by sponsoring just 1% of an issue, you make a huge difference in our life as a publication.
Sponsor an Essay
If you want to read more essays, stories, and features like these, you can sponsor a piece online. With this option, you ensure that we compensate everyone involved in the process, respecting the effort of both writer and editor.
Sponsor a Recipe
Our readership wants more palm-oil free and vegan recipes in their lives and we’d love to provide that. However, each recipe takes a minimum of 3 hours in our test kitchen and up to a $100 in ingredients. Sponsoring a recipe means you help us cope with these costs while ensuring more instructive eco-conscious content hits the net.
Sponsor an Illustration
We believe that one of the best ways to spread an eco-conscious and palm-oil free message is by partnering with talented illustrators, whose artistic work brings your favorite essays to life. If you have a soft spot for the creative voices we feature, keep it going with this package.
And you can always purchase any of the tangible goodies in our shop today.
