Editor's note: This page should have the following:

  • Why do we charge what we do for the dances?
    • Why do we offer variable pricing?
  • Why do we charge what we do for our lesson series?
  • How do we make money?
  • How should we NOT strive to make money?
  • In what cases do we plan on losing money for particular events, e.g., Odd Fellows dances?
  • What are some examples of things that we could do to make money that we haven't started doing yet? For example, it would be cool to sell steel water bottles with our logo on them for a fundraiser, because it's something useful for a dancer. It would be lame to sell candy bars or fruit or other "classic" fundraising things; keep it related to our goal of having a great scene.
  • How do we keep track of expenses? What is our annual budget? Reference our private books document in this case.

  • Explain Phil & Michelle's idea of having community fund raisers at the monthly dances for local causes.
