L’AFN is a non-profit society. That means we need to find the monetary resources needed to offer our services to the education sector and the public. The main income is provided through different government grants. Research and presentation of the grants requests is an essential task which is marvellously done by our coordinator .
On top of the grants L’AFN organize some fundraising activities. It can be 50/50 draws or silent auctions. Some business also help us by giving various gifts like food for our volunteers.
The other aspect is the value in the numerous volunteer’s work given to L’AFN.
