Greetings fellow hackerspace list denizens,

This may be a question more appropriate for the financial list, but it also affects general hackerspace organization.

How do you, at your space, accommodate lower income members, for whom available cash is an important issue, but who may be important to the organization? 

Do you:
a) have some sort of sponsorship program?
b) have a credits-for-space work/administration system?

We're writing our business plan and want to ensure that we block out such accommodations in a workable manner, but are having a bit of trouble finding a working model within the hackerspace world.
