Where exactly does the money go?
Adventures in faith is a Not-for-Profit Corporation, certified with the California Secretary of State. A PDF copy of each month's bank statement will be posted on the club's website on the 1st of each month, showing all account transactions for members to view.
***NOTE: All club-organized events (excluding fundraisers) are free to 'paid-members', but may have costs involved for such things as permit requirements, parking, airfare, hotels, car-pool participation, auto or equipment rental, tickets to private or public events such as movies, sporting events, or any other costs not associated with the club itself.
All funds raised will go directly into the cost of planning, promoting, and hosting future events, and other basic club financial requirements. None of the club's 'membership dues' go to the leadership team unless the individual event is specifically identified as an instructional event and the instructor happens to be a member of the leadership team. 'Non-paid' members may be charged a participation fee for some events. All fee-based events will have a detailed explanation of what the purpose of the fee is and how it will be disbursed.
The Adventures in Faith leadership team receives no salary and is made up entirely of volunteers.
Following is a breakdown of how Adventures in Faith funds will be spent ...
While this list may be updated in the future, at no time will it ever be altered to allow a salary to any person affiliated with the club, except in the case that person is acting as an event special instructor in a professional capacity, and again ... this will always be noted in detail on the specific event posting.
