Generosity Policy
We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what works for you, and offer as much of the program fee as you can. For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a "patron price." Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the cost for others who are not able to pay the full price.
