Beyond Academia LLC is the parent business that funds BAFS and our Community Presence programs. Since we never charge admission for our events, we rely entirely on the generosity of our community to support our Instructors and Featured Performers. While much of our budget theoretically comes from the larger donors listed below, even a financially disadvantaged individual can participate by becoming a Supporting Member of the Free Skool for just $20.
