Service fees are offered on a wide sliding scale. The sliding scale is an intentional effort to distribute resources equitably between orgs worked with, including K-12 schools, universities, non-profits, grassroots community orgs; as well as to support individuals and families. Paying at the higher end of the scale—makes it possible for this work to be provided to individuals and grassroots orgs at little to no cost to them.
