The Fraternity is not a source of income for any of our members.
All of our members are required to pay annual dues, but the majority of our funding comes from charitable donations. Donations go mainly toward the costs of our activities, buying food, camping supplies, and covering travel costs. This keeps the cost of inclusion low for our members. Some portion of our funds will go toward limited operating costs such as apparel or administrative expenses like this website.
