Other funding options

Please note a grant may not cover all the cost of your community language school. You may also need to contribute by raising more money and by working as a volunteer. Some schools increase their income through fundraising and sponsorship projects and by charging students affordable fees.

You may also like to consider other forms of government, non-government and/or philanthropic funding.
