One To World is a non-profit organization which means all of the money we collect goes towards achieving our mission of connecting international students and scholars, with one another, and with Americans to share their lives and perspectives in life-changing ways. Most of our operating costs (office rent, salaries, program expenses, etc.) come from donations and grants. However, we also need to collect some fees to pay for different programming costs, such as tickets, event supplies, guides, transportation (for certain out of town programs), and food. For all of our programs, we negotiate discounts and collaborate with our partner organizations to keep the prices as low as possible to accommodate a student’s budget.
