A1. Many members ask this question. Your dues pay for our website, accounting costs, liability insurance, occasional ViV sponsored events, office supplies, background checks for volunteers, audio-visual equipment as needed, annual Osher dues for ViV members, rent of a storage facility for our medical equipment library, and rent to the Village of Corrales for use of the Community Center. In addition, we subsidize the membership of some members who cannot afford our dues with our Access Fund. We also keep some funds in reserve for unexpected costs. Currently, we have no one who receives a salary or other reimbursement for their ViV efforts—we’re an entirely volunteer organization.
