Membership

Please read to understand how our membership is structured:

All memberships cover one entire household. We don’t want to exclude anyone from being a member because of financial difficulties- which is why we’ve structured our membership levels by support.

 

$15 of every membership goes straight to PFLAG National, which is where you are entered into a membership database and will gain many benefits. (You can find a list of the benefits below the membership plans.)

Any additional funding beyond $15 goes to your local PFLAG Woodstock chapter and is what we will use for operational costs and to provide resources and support to the local community. All membership plans include an additional $1 to cover the payment capture fees we incur. You pick your level of support! If you are able to give more, great!

 

All memberships are valid for one year.

Membership Benefits

Besides lending your name to PFLAG’s work on behalf of LGBTQ+ visibility and rights, your membership entitles you to valuable benefits that keep you fully informed and give you the understanding you need to advocate persuasively for our community and speak up for LGBTQ+ equality. Tap into PFLAG’s vast treasury of educational materials and up to the minute policy papers to keep yourself fully informed and ready to advocate.
