teal_leaves_smAbout Our Dues Structure

As shown above, Fabrangen has a “fair share” dues structure, with three suggested dues levels – a regular individual rate of $600/year, a sustaining rate of $900/year, and a reduced rate of $240/year. Unlike many other congregations where dues are based on family membership, our dues are per adult, reflecting the diverse nature of our community which includes many single people as well as couples with and without children.

This dues structure  was developed with Fabrangen’s values in mind. Whereas in the past we had only one level of dues, the new structure provides rates that reflect the different abilities of our members to support Fabrangen financially, while at the same time, providing a base of support the minimizes the need for additional fundraising to meet our budget. The 3-tiered dues structure was developed after a year-long review of our community, our needs, and the dues and experiences of other congregations. We stress that there is only one kind of Fabrangen member; the dues rates reflect only our varying financial capacity to support Fabrangen.

The sustaining level of $900 effectively combines the regular dues rate with an additional annual contribution and will provide important support to sustain our community. The reduced rate of $240 is an option for those who cannot pay the regular individual rate of $600, but who still want to provide meaningful support for the community. However, if these options do not fit your personal needs or circumstances, you are welcome to email the Fabrangen Coordinator for a confidential discussion about another dues arrangement.

Dues can be paid in a lump sum, quarterly, or monthly and can be paid by check or via PayPal. If you prefer to pay in quarterly or monthly installments, we recommend that you set up an automatic bill-pay to ensure timely payment of your dues.
