[4] SILC Year Book: Offsetting the costs

As you are aware, the schools charge anywhere from $25 to $75 for a school year book. We are trying not to charge for the yearbook at SILC and succeeding all these years.
In order to offset the cost of printing, we are soliciting some limited number of advertisements from the local businesses (the advertisement should be recommended by one of the SILC families and approved by editorial committee for inclusion).

1 - Full page $400

2 - Half page $200

3 - Qr page $100

Anyone (business or individual) who was/is associated (past or present), with SILC and is still in good standing with SILC or is a non profit organization (with a charter that is amenable to SILC), gets a 25% discount.

The SILC board  reserves the right to reject any advts which it deems not in consonance with the SILC charter and mission.

If you know any business interested to place an advertisement in the year book, please let us know
