Deposits: The minimum deposit is the Program Fee(s) for your party (or for children and teens, their housing fee), due when you register. However, if you are applying for financial aid from your meeting or from FGC, a deposit is due one week after you learn of aid granted. Deposits and other payments may be made by credit/debit card, electronic check, or paper check. FGC pays twice the fees for reward cards – whenever possible, avoid Visa Signature Preferred and Mastercard World Cards.
International Payments: Payments made in other currencies besides US dollars will be credited with the prevailing exchange rate at our financial institution on the day of deposit.
