Participants of Circo de los Niños pay a minimal fee to ensure their enrollment at the start of each cycle. In order to make it accessible to as many families as possible to take part in the project, we operate with very low fees (on average $450 pesos per child per 10-week session). Although the fees are accessible, for some it is still a difficult choice between school costs, family needs and the child´s participation in our program.
The revenue from School Fees reflects only 20% of the total budget to run our programs. In 2016, we forsee a deficit in our revenues of approximate $150,000 pesos. It is important for us to fill the gap through our Fundraising events and our recent Campaign for Dream Catchers Fund, an opportunity for Annual Contributions .
