Where Does the Money Go?

The simplest answer is that the money goes to support the Order of the Elemental Mysteries. There are however two buckets.

The teacher portion includes teacher travel, housing, and meals as well as teacher fees. Teachers are paid to provide compensation for their time, talent, and energy. Katrina Messenger, as the head of the Order and primary instructor, is paid as clergy from the administrative bucket. The teacher bucket is used to provide compensation to visiting teachers and faculty members on a per class basis.

The administrative portion includes all costs associated with housing, food, materials, and paying clergy and staff.
