**Cost for the event is on a sliding scale from $0-$80, all meals and lodging included**
-Note about fee: The fee for GROW, which includes food and lodging for the weekend, as well as all workshops, is on a sliding scale from $0-$80, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. We do ask, however, that people engage in class solidarity, so that we can keep the event low-cost or free for people who have financial barriers.
———–What is class solidarity?———–
Class refers to where you and your family fit into the world regarding finances (for example: poor, working class, middle class, wealthy, owning class).
Resources for Organizing and Social Change is a grassroots organization that works on a shoestring budget. We receive few grants and the majority of our fundraising comes from small, grassroots contributions. All of our programming is offered on a sliding scale donation basis that goes all the way down to $0, except for the VERY RARE occasion where we have to charge for an event. If you are someone who can donate more because you are middle class or wealthy, please consider doing so. If you do so, you will be engaging in class solidarity.
You can pay your registration fee by cash, money order, or check on the day of the event, or ahead of time by making it out to ROSC and sending it to: PO Box 2444, Augusta, ME 04338-2444. You can also pay online here.
