This optional scale may be accessed - regardless of income - by folks who identify as BIPOC or POC. It is pay-what-you-wish and you do not need to explain your qualification. I will never question or assess your right to utilize this scale.
Pandemic update: folks who are unemployed and unable to access government assistance/benefits can also utilize this optional scale
Suggested for folks making minimum wage or less than $25,000/year, on medicaid, SS/fixed income, unemployment, or under financial stress without a safety net of inherited wealth or substantial savings.
Suggested for folks making between $25,000 - 50,000/year and/or those with a higher income but under substantial financial stress (student debt, single parenting, medical debt, etc) which renders their actual income closer to this range.
Suggested for folks who make between $50,000 - $80,000/year, and/or folks who have a safety net of inherited wealth, and/or those with a higher income but under financial pressure (student debt, single parenting, medical debt, etc) which renders their actual income closer to this range.
Suggested for folks who make +$80,000/year and/or folks who have substantial inherited wealth.
You are welcome to pay beyond your suggested rate if you feel a desire/capacity to do so.
