Personal Fund Raising Suggestions:

  • Often times employers will sponsor an interpreter's attendance

  • Family and friends often donate for specialized training

  • Religious organizations will often offer a scholarship or partial funding

  • Individuals can earn a lot through crazy fund raisers like car washes and/or bake sales

  • Have a special skill you often leave dormant? Often people will donate for services like photography, graphic design, clothing alterations, house painting, or even fine arts creations.

 

Just remember, get creative, stay positive, and give it a shot! We have seen some incredible stories come together to make the funding happen.

 

NOTE: We have seen the most incredible miracles happen with funding. You might think you can't attend due to funding limitations, but anyone who tries, always finds the funds, often in unlikely places. Don't let funding be what stops you from applying.
