How much money does Shen Yun make?
As a non-profit performing arts company, Shen Yun has no investors, corporate backers, or owners that profit from its performances and success. Shen Yun exists for its mission of cultural preservation and renewal, and so, as a non-profit, all proceeds of ticket sales and merchandise are reinvested into the company to support its continued operations and growth—which, as anyone familiar with the company might imagine, are sizable. As Shen Yun puts on an all-new production each year and performs it in front of over a million people worldwide, the budget required for its choreographers, composers, musicians, dancers, wardrobe department, graphics team, travel, and so on are by no means small. While it’s a massive undertaking, everyone at Shen Yun is dedicated to the company’s mission and finds the challenges of performing at this level meaningful and deeply rewarding.
