FAQ - Membership
Q: How do I sign up as a Member?
A: Just head on over to our Memberships page, here, and follow the prompts.
Q: How much does membership Cost?
A: We have three Membership price points:
...these can also be paid as an annual lump sum of $300, $600 or $1,200. If you would like to donate in excess of $1,200 you can simply enter in the higher amount when signing up.
Q: Beyond the amount donated, is there a difference between membership at each price point?
A: No. All members, no matter how much they choose to donate, receive the same engagement opportunities and have the same voting rights when it comes to allocation of grants. We have pricing options because we want to be inclusive and encourage diversity within our membership (whether that be age, socio economic status etc.). We simply encourage Members to give according to their capacity, and hope they they share our philosophy of reducing barriers to participation.
