Our operating expenses are actually very low. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization. Gravity Payments, and Heritage Bank have generously partnered with us to significantly lower our banking and credit card fees. We also have no physical store front to pay rent for. Thanks to a few generous corporate sponsors, 100% of your contribution goes directly to the cause. It’s very important to us to keep our expenses low and to put every single dime to the best use possible.
