Just a quick reply to say that this point deserves to be repeated again and again : A non-profit event/organization has a lot of interest into disclosing its incomes/costs publicly. I remember being a student and thinking that everything ought to be free. Show us the cost problems you need to solve. Make your problems our problems, it will help us make our money your money ;-)

I think that detailing the cost structures can really help make it lower. People lending things instead of renting them, offering couch-surfing, etc...
