Fees and Finances

The Yomechas Indian Guide Federation is legally incorporated as a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization in the state of Illinois.  We have always sought to keep member dues and fees as low as possible. We are a volunteer organization; there are no paid positions.

Member Fees
All members must pay a beginning-of-year registration fee. In addition, the Federation sponsors monthly events for its members. Most events are self-funded. Members pay only for the events they choose to attend.


Tribe Activities
Tribe meetings and activities are basic to the Guides-Princess program. The Yomechas Federation does not monitor financial decisions made by individual tribes. Participation in tribal activities is voluntary and most expenses are trivial. Perhaps the biggest single cost for most members is the cost of a vest.


Financial Assistance
The Yomechas Federation offer a discrete scholarship program for families who want to participate but who are facing financial hardship. (To learn more, contact our Federation Outfitter.)
