Virginia Science Olympiad, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is an entirely volunteer-run organization. We have attempted through the last few years to keep our registration cost fairly level, and have even been able to fund an initiative to provide discounts to schools with a large percentage of free and reduced lunch students. However, we have been told that our facility costs for Fairfax facilities will be doubling next year. VASO is working on grants and partnerships, but we are asking for donations to help offset the coming impact to registration costs. All donations are tax deductible and all are greatly appreciated.
