"Offset Costs" represents the amount that GenderEqual's budget is reduced by having the Mentors' travel, accommodation, and food expenditures paid by their cycling team instead of by GenderEqual. Using competitive cyclists as Mentors allows us to greatly reduce the overall operating budget while still carrying out a nationwide mission.
"Funding" represents the portion of the Administration and Office budgets allocated to fundraising. It does not represent an additional cost above the budget items listed or above the total funding goal.
All fundraising is conducted by GenderEqual staff or volunteers. GenderEqual does not employ a professional fundraising company.
