Sreeshti is member subscription + donation driven. We have no other sources of income. Occasionally there are sponsors for particular events and stall fees from vendors.
Sreeshti members pay a nominal annual fee of $60. That covers administrative, accounting, legal and website hosting costs.
In addition to the $60, members also pay a certain amount to cover the cost of conducting various events throughout the year. So, if members (or anyone else for that matter) participate in Sreeshti events such as Saraswati Puja, Pochishe Boishakh, Summer Picnic, 15th August, New Years Eve Party etc, they pay a donation amount to cover actual costs of hosting that event. We only collect what we need.
All Sreeshti office bearers volunteer their time.
