    The question is how do each of us tackle the question of getting enough money in the door to justify our existence.
    1. Membership — How do you handle membership
    2. Courses — are course a big part of your revenue
    3. Grants — do you depend on Grants
    4. Local funding — Do you get local or municipal funding
    5. More

    Great questions!
    We got started with grants for some funding, but we quickly found out, grants typically are for equipment, not staff. Staff becomes probably the most important part of a labs success. We quickly worked to make ourselves integral into the academic side of the college here at Gateway. If you are part of an academic institution, I believe this is a must do!
