Can schools, agencies and other institutions get on the volunteer list and thus avoid paying fees?

Perhaps it would be reasonable for someone who is visually impaired or otherwise elligible for bookshare to be asked to pay the $25 set up fee when joining the volunteer program. Then if he or she puts together enough credits, access to the main bookshare page would be possible. I just object to people using this as a backdoor without doing volunteer work when bookshare is so strapped for cash. I know $25 is not much and that is the point. (I know the part about noone who is blind being able to afford to pay anything at all for anything because none of us have jobs.)
