Funding Needs

Seeking to raise $600,000 for 2010.  The funds required are small because most of the participants are volunteers and most of the paperwork for enrolling college students and elementary school students is performed on-line.  The majority of the funding is for printing manuals and videos along with a small administrative budget.
