What does membership mean?
Membership is a commitment to support the mission and practice at Clouds in Water, whatever your background or faith may be. A member’s commitment generally springs from the beneficial experiences received from attending meditation, classes and other events at the Center.
How much is membership?
There is no set fee for membership — the amount you contribute is up to you. We suggest that members consider donating 2 – 2.5 percent of income; however, this is a guideline and we ask that you determine your own contribution level based on your personal situation and level of participation. Donations to Clouds in Water are tax deductible.
No one will be refused membership due to inability to pay. You may also pledge volunteer hours instead of, or in addition to, a monetary pledge.
