What is the cost?

The total cost of the trip is $900.  That cost  is split into two parts.

 

The travel fee is $400 to cover the cost of travel for the week which includes food, lodging, Mexican car insurance coverage, security, and other miscellaneous trip costs for one individual. Travel fees are not tax deductible. 

 

The fundraising fee is a $500. We ask each traveler to help raise and/or pay an additional $500 for the construction and program costs.  You can fundraise all or a part of this to reduce the total cost. You can raise personal funds from sources such as family, friends and co-workers outside the parish community. We have a fundraising website to hep you at www.crowdrise.com/gobasics. Go and set up your fundraising account.  See How_To_Set_Up_Crowdrise_Acct. Of course, if you prefer to bypass fundraising, you can just donate the $500 per person directly. Use the PayPal link at the bottom of this page to do so.  All donations are tax-deductible.

 

We have a limited number of scholarships for interested participants in financial need.

 

We also ask participants to assist/ participate in group fundraisers such as the annual Resurrection Bake Sale and the Cristo Rey Garage sale.   Church of the Resurrection and St Simon have a goal of $10,000 in their fundraisers.
