All payments are made directly to EF.

The only cash that is given to your group leader (MHS staff) is the money to cover tips needed for the tour guide, bus drivers, and activity leaders while traveling, as well at your personalize trip T-shirt. There are fundraising opportunities to help raise this amount, anything earned over that will be applied to your EF account.

Your Personal Donation page - friends and family members can donate directly into your account through the EF website, making your monthly payments smaller and/or helping you save to buy them a souvenir later.
