The process of creating a ANSI Standard and a subsequent Board Certification is a tremendous financial investment by the BEPP.  As a result of the ongoing expenses of the initiatives, in pursuit of the BEPP mission, a pending 501(c)(3) organization,  we are asking for donations to help offset these costs.

BEPP has been built on transparency and that is why we clearly disclose our processes, and expenses.  Donations received would be applied to:

Development Fees (Total $175,000)

  • ANSI fees to review and approve any standards submitted ($50,000)

  • Prometric, Board Certification test development  ($125,000)

Annual Fees (Total 7,650)

Monthly Fees (Total $243.50 - annual $2,922)

  • Email services ($79.50)

  • Project Management application ($99)

  • Document Management application ($65)

 

Any donations made to the BEPP will not be used for member compensation.
