Soon after being accepted and prior to your trip, you will be asked to make a sliding scale contribution of $750-$850 towards the cost of the program.* This fee covers most ground transportation, meals, translation, admission fees, and lodging expenses during the program. Participants may purchase additional food and drink, souvenirs, and gifts at individual discretion. Participants are expected to pay for a few meals (est. $5-$15/meal) and car rides ($2-$4 ea) during free times and any liquor, argile, gifts, internet café use, and personal items. Airfare is not included. Transportation to and from airport is est. $10 - $15 each way and is also not included in the program fees. You should expect to spend a minimum of 10% more than Birthright Unplugged fees during your trip plus airfare.
This contribution is non-refundable except in the event that the trip is cancelled. We encourage those who can pay more to do so as program fees do not cover program costs. Personal fundraising has been very successful for our participants and at the bottom of this page is a template for a letter you are welcome to use.
* Checks and money orders must be in US currency. Please apply even if financing the trip presents a challenge.
