Our bylaws state: "The Alliance shall be financially independent and supported by its members so it remains solely accountable to its membership and shall not seek or accept outside funding or financial support, unless approved by a vote"
In creating our membership dues program, the founders of GASBR were committed to the idea that an inability to pay dues should not serve as a bar to a person's participation as a member. Also, many women are poor due to sex-based oppression. For these reasons, we set dues payments low at only $5 per month, and created a dues waiver program for those applicants who cannot afford to pay even this amount.
It is our intention to offset the costs of the dues waiver program by creating this Solidarity Fund, so that members who can afford to do so, have an opportunity to contribute to supporting the dues payments of other members who can not.
Please contribute to this fund!
