We welcome all members, whether they pay dues or not. We value what each member can contribute to our common knowledge.
We hope, however, that you will also contribute financially. We ask that you pay an annual $10 to help operate the association. The operating funds support our Internet web site, our attendance at genealogical events, newsletter printing and mailing, the cost of searching for new members and information by mail and telephone, and other projects to discover and preserve our heritage.
In addition, we request a one time contribution of $25 that goes to our library fund. We, in turn, contribute your donation to the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society (SGS) which purchases items we specify. Canadians will receive a tax receipt from the SGS for their charitable contributions.
If you are an e-mail member you may think that a contribution is not warranted because we do not use postage or telephone to serve you directly. Remember though that there is a cost of doing business for every enterprise and that, through the mail or phone, we may find people or information that is invaluable to you. We will gladly do the work, but we hope you will help us carry the financial load.
Please make cheques payable to: Zichydorf Village Association, 2274 Baldwin Bay, Regina, SK, Canada, S4V 1H2. You may also use the Donation feature on the bottom left of the page to pay using PayPal. Please note that ZVA pays fees totaling 5.9% if you use a credit card and PayPal. Thus, we prefer a cheque, but are just as happy if you add a small extra amount to PayPal to cover the expense. Note also that our PayPal account is in Canadian dollars, so American members will pay a different amount than that shown in the donation form, depending on the exchange rate in effect at that time.
To check your dues status, log in at zichydorfonline.org, click on Your Profile and check the last item in the column on the right side of the page.
