All of the costs listed are just educated guesses. There is a large variation in the cost of an airline ticket, depending on several factors. the US dollar exchange rate being the main one.
You have to book your airline tickets through the designated KIA travel agent. Sorry, no airmiles.
Charitable receipts are made out to the name on the cheque.
Any payments made by a clinic for their staff, are non-transferable to another staff member.
Being chosen for a KIA team is a privilege, not a right. Completion and submission of a Destination Preference Form with the $150.00 donation to cover the administration fee does not guarantee placement on a KIA team roster. Your $150.00 donation, like any donation to a registered charity, is non-refundable.
The deadline for the submission of the Destination Preference Form is July 21. Hopefully teams will be assigned by August 7.
Before applying, please read the Memorandum of Understanding and fully comprehend its contents.

As well you will be able to see your online donation receipt. Additionally this will allow trip organizers to communicate more effectively with applicants.
