From its founding in 1996 until 2023, ZVA encouraged voluntary membership dues to support it financially. This entailed the collection of personal information of contributors. However, the increasing complexity, expense, and liability imposed by privacy laws has created a burden that is too great for such a small organization to bear.
Beginning in 2023 ZVA will no longer collect membership dues or the personal information of members. We hope, however, that you will contribute financially to the maintenance of this site through anonymous donations. We encourage you to pay an annual $10 to help operate the association. The operating funds support our Internet web site and other projects to discover and preserve our heritage.
In addition, we request a one-time contribution of $25 from first-time users to support our library fund. We, in turn, contribute your donation to a dedicated fund at the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society (SGS) which purchases items we specify. Canadians will receive a tax receipt from the SGS for their charitable contributions.
Please use the Donation feature on the Main Menu to pay using PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account. You may use your credit card on our account. Alternatively, you may make cheques payable to: Zichydorf Village Association, 2114 E Laurier Cres., Regina, SK, Canada, S4V 0P6.
