The Central Fund is our version of the annual fund. It costs Central approximately $10,500 to educate one student each year. Of course we do not charge students this amount. At most we might charge $6,000 per year, and most of our students do not pay this amount. That means we need to raise at least $4,500 per student per year. Most of our funding comes from individuals and foundations. Thank you for your support.
With over 400 students in 12 locations in the US and Myanmar, our educational needs are growing.
