Capital Equipment Fee In addition to the registration fee below, a Capital Equipment Fee is due. Please make your "Capital Equipment Fee" check in the amount of $60.00 for 1 class or $100.00 for both classes payable to: WFOR and mail to WFOR, PO Box 2011, Westford, MA 01886 The capital fee fuels the ongoing need for new equipment as our program grows. This is a common structure for crew programs in that the base fee goes to support day to day operating costs of our program. WFOR Crew is a non-profit organization responsible for prioritizing the expenditures from the capital equipment funds, and is managed independently from the Westford Recreation Department. As a result, this part of your payment is tax deductible as well. If you choose to add greater than 10% of the cost of the program that you are participating in we wish to thank you in advance for your generosity.
