Financially Accessible Membership Opportunities

Our Membership Support Team is busy developing new and innovative ways to make membership in Genuine Contact as financially accessible as possible.

We know there are many reasons for membership fees to feel challenging - both in the differences in currency value in national and international economies and in personal situations. As a student, in business start-up, challenging business years, retirement, and many other personal situations, making a financial commitment to membership might feel like a big investment. As people passionate about Genuine Contact in developing countries, making payment in US dollars and in US dollar value internationally, we know it's often not always realistic. What's most important for us in Genuine Contact is that people who are passionate about being members of the organization can join us!

While we develop our accessible membership prototype, if you find that the membership fee feels like a barrier to participate, please contact the Director to work out an appropriate financial contribution. This is on an honor basis, so you won't need to make a financial disclosure to make alternative arrangements.

Earn Points Towards Your Membership

Starting from the first day of your membership, you can earn points towards your membership renewal fee.  Points can be earned:

  • Loyalty Points: Earned through your years of involvement and your continuing education through Genuine Contact Program workshops and other programs rooted in Genuine Contact.
  • Contribution Points: Earned through your participation in the Genuine Contact Organization through active contributions to the growth of Genuine Contact worldwide.

Points are collected throughout your membership year and counted towards your membership renewal fee.
