Becoming a Member of Great Wave
As a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Great Wave is entirely dependent on its members’ dues and donations to meet its ongoing financial obligations.
Becoming a member of Great Wave carries with it both practical and spiritual benefits. Below, we outline our membership categories and the current monthly dues amounts.
Friendship Member ($10.00/month)
This membership category is for those who live at a great distance from Great Wave and cannot practice with the sangha on a regular basis.
Practicing Member ($50.00/month)
This membership cateogy is for those who live less than a day’s drive from Ludington and participate in one or more events (retreats, workshops, etc.) each year. This is the standard membership category.
Sustaining Member ($60 + /month)
This membership category is for those who live less than a day’s drive from Ludington and participate in one or more events (retreats, workshops, etc.) each year. They further have the means to help keep event costs low and accessible for those who might not otherwise be able to afford them.
We sincerely hope you will become a member and help Great Wave Zen Sangha fulfill its mission. Becoming a member will give you significant discounts on retreats, classes, workshops, and other practice events. To become a member, please complete our Membership Pledge form.
