Giving to the Program and Operations Fund helps us to pay overhead and offset programming costs, allowing us to keep classes and events affordable and continue to grow. Giving on a monthly basis helps you to manage your annual giving by spreading out the payments over time, and helps us to plan our budget because there is money coming in regularly. You can set up the amount you’d like to give, and stop the payments at any time. If you would like to give a different amount than listed on the current options, let us know and we can edit the button to include more payment amounts.
