  1. Where does FLY get its funding?

  2. Are there membership fees/will there be costs to attend events?
    No, anyone who is employed at Yale may join or attend events. We have philanthropy partnerships and we encourage members to give back to the community, either through service or other means.
     
  3. Are there any other ways to get involved (leadership opportunities) with the group?
