Costs of Program. *
HAPA believes that no leader should be prevented in participating in Kuleana Academy because of economic situation, so we have worked hard to fundraise the money to cover participants' travel and program costs. However, once accepted into the Academy, each Participant is expected to fundraise a $1,000 contribution to the program. $200 of the $1,000 will be due upfront by August 20, 2017 if accepted to the program . The $200 can be from personal funds or fundraised. Limited Scholarships are available for the initial $200. The remaining $800 must be fundraised by October, 2017 and cannot be a personal contribution. However, they can be made up of contributions raised from multiple persons (i.e. $40 contributions raised from 20 people; totaling $800). This component is included as a “real life” exercise as part of the fundraising training.
