Program fee

FSD is a professional  organization on the cutting edge of global grassroots initiatives. All funding for our programs and projects comes from private donors and program fees. Instead of relying on donations to reduce program costs, FSD directly applies more than 80% of our revenue to supporting the efforts of our community partner organizations, at no cost to them. Our fee-for-service model provides partner organizations with the most resources possible and participants with a premier professional development experience.
