Frequently Asked Questions about Membership

Q. I would like to join as an individual member, but really can't afford the $10,000 initial membership. Is there some other way I can participate?

A. Yes, there are several ways. You can join with several others and create your own membership chapter through pooled resources -- that's what the Seattle and the Ponte Vedra, Florida, chapters have done -- or you may participate in a broad-based membership, like the one at St. Alban's parish in Washington. Or, if you may want to spread out your initial $10,000 membership payment into more convenient instalments, our Treasurer can help. You can contact him at treasurer@compassrosesociety.org
