School of the Alternative is asking that you give. Currently, all faculty, staff, and administrative positions are unpaid. All supplies will be donated, and tuition solely covers the cost of our base budget. With your help, we can change all of this.

At SotA, our current budget (funded through tuition from paying students) covers the cost of food, lodging, transportation (gas to and from airports to pick folks up), and operational expenses (storage unit, PO box, email, and website expenses). 

All else will be funded through generous donations both inside and outside of our community. Many of our class supplies in the past have been donation based, and every donation (even just a few dollars!), is immensely helpful to our incredibly bare bones, DIY budget. 

This year, our top fundraising priorities are:
Deposit for 2019
Staff + Faculty Stipends
Class supplies

Donate resources

Currently, almost all of our class supplies are donated by those inside and outside of our community. If you have access to resources that could be helpful to our community, this is a huge way to support this project. Anything from projectors, to music equipment, to paint, to paper, every extra resource is a massive help to our community!

Our community is grown through spreading the word! We currently have a minimal advertising budget, so most of our community hears about our program through word of mouth or press.

Do you have a press resource who might want to cover SotA? Do you know someone who could benefit from the student experience? Do you know folks who are passionate about sharing, and would be interested in applying to teach with us? Can you flyer in your area? We can provide you with the resources (poster files, verbiage, email templates, etc) to share our call for applications!
