ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP DUES

We are pleased to see a continued increase in Lohanas in Canada, which currently exceeds 650 family households!  We encourage all Lohanas to become annual members (lifetime optional) to support the community in being able to continue to provide great value and growth!

The Annual Membership Dues for 2018 is $50 per household.
The annual membership dues are to be paid by all members despite their status of residential location, age, lifetime or annual, based on the family household address that the member resides in.  If the joint family members reside in different households (e.g. father/son living at different addresses), we request that you honor this system on a per separate household basis. The membership due deadline request has now passed, however we are still accepting membership collections throughout the year, and at each of our events.  The change from collecting dues at Diwali in the past, to collecting at the beginning of the year instead, allows the committee to budget in advance, plan for better events, and put communication systems in place so that the year can run more smoothly!  The committee are all volunteers running this organization, so your support in paying your annual dues on time is greatly appreciated to allow us to serve you better.
 

Lifetime Memberships
You have the option to also become Lifetime members at $300, which typically provides the benefit of a 50% discount off your annual membership.  Please note that for this 2018 year a special general meeting was held where it was unanimously voted that this discount be waved in order for us to meet budgets to make necessary operational changes.  We thank the lifetime members for supporting this and paying the full annual membership for this year.

Can I donate or Sponsor LCFT?

Absolutely!  We have several options to donate or sponsor, which can be found by clicking here.
Our annual sponsorship programs include membership and access to several events, as well as a donation tax receipt.  The funds are all deposited into a central budget, which the committee, led by our treasurer, has allocated as operational spend to improve our communications, events and community support.  A full report on this will be avaialable at the next AGM.
