|A single church, a local foundation or charitable individual, a regional denominational office or an ecumenical ministerial association may want to support affordable professional education by raising local charitable funds to offset a portion of student tuition. For most local training programs, IMN might set a fund-raising goal of $3-5,000 per event in order to provide some tuition help for all attendees. Event hosting programs may, of course, be combined with site hosting in order to provide the most efficient pricing. Support may also be given by providing free or low cost promotion through church publications or Websites.
||Fees can be earned by the participating organization for funds obtained through their efforts and by attendance obtained through their promotion. Fees may be taken in cash and/or tuition credits. Funding must be in place before final course tuition is announced.
