JUST LIKE A VESSEL, THERE ARE SEVERAL SYSTEMS THAT HELP US GET UNDERWAY.....
You don't have to be independently wealthy to financially support us. In fact, donations commonly vary from $10 to $10,000. Some people give once, and others give year after year.
Local, State, and Federal grants programs are always on the table and we diligently apply whenever they are available. While this can sometimes be our largest source of funding, it is not guaranteed year after year. Political outreach and support is paramount to seeing we are awarded the funding applied for.
Long term sustainability comes from our corporate and business partners. Sponsorship can be monetary, service, or product driven. While this is just a fraction of our operating capital, it tends to be the most consistent year after year.
