How to Use the Sliding Scale System
It is vital for us at Gathered Roots to keep our prices accessible to everyone in the community and that is why we have a sliding scale system in place. Sliding scale or “pay what you can” is often based on individual income levels, with people of higher incomes paying more. However, many factors complicate and affect our financial status, for example some groups of people have specific costs that do not apply to the population at large and others have access to resources that are not always reflected in their income levels. Please consider both your available resources and earning power when are choosing your share payment.
Below is a short guide for approaching the question of how much you should pay. Life is complicated, and how much you can afford might be different for each session. This list is not comprehensive, but we hope it will provide a starting point for those who are new to community sliding scale services.
