Annual Membership Subscription
Membership Year runs from:
1st April to 31st March.
The annual membership subscription:
£22 per member. **
For any new member joining after 1st October the subscription is £14. **
**Note: The annual subscription helps Chalfonts U3A to function but does not include any costs for putting on special events like, for example, trips to the theatre, excursions etc. When members participate in events like these there will be additional costs paid by each member as required.
Room Hire Contribution When Interest Groups hire a room at various venues we ask members who are attending to make a £1 contribution towards the cost of hiring the room/location.
Specialist Groups Some Interest Groups may need to engage a qualified instructor to lead the group. If this is the case then any member attending will be required to pay whatever fee necessary towards the cost of hiring the instructor. This cost is split between the members, usually at the beginning of the course of instruction.
Do you qualify to be a member?
If you are an adult, i.e. aged over 18, you can join the U3A. The only requirement is that you're not in full-time PAID employment.
About Gift Aid… Any UK taxpayer can choose to have part of their income tax paid over to a registered charity. Because The Third Age Trust has charitable status this means we can boost our membership donations by 25 pence for every £1 we receive. The benefit? We can use the extra monies we receive for the benefit of our members'. The button below will take you to the official government website which explains how Gift Aid works…
