Chapter Donation Page

One-Time Donation Option

 

This page will allow you to participate as a chapter donor, but make donations on an individual one-time basis instead of recurring payments.  (If you were looking for a recurring payment option, click here for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly options.)  You can enter the exact amount you wish to donate.  If your donation is of a value of $120 or greater, you will be eligible for Chapter Donors Program benefits, as indicated in the listing below.  If you make a donation and at some point wish to make another, you can return to this page at any time and enter your desired donation level.  Donations under $120 are welcome, but are not eligible for Chapter Donors Program benefits.  If a person makes multiple donations over the course of a fiscal year that add up to $120 or greater (including signing up at a later point for monthly or bi-weekly donations), that person will then be eligible for program benefits according to the level equal to the sum of their total donations for the year.

 

If you are eligible for Chapter Donors Program benefits, please complete the Paper Membership Form and we will process your NSBE Online membership for you.  (If you prefer to enter your membership data into NSBE Online yourself, simply go to https://nol.nsbe.org, but do not pay when prompted - instead choose the Pay Later option.  One of the chapter Donors Program benefits is that the chapter will pay your national dues for you and waive local dues.)

 

Remember, if you would like to donate to a specific chapter program or event, please find the program/event in the chapter budget and complete the Chapter Donor Registration Form, indicating how you would like your donation used.  We will make sure your money is applied as you directed.

 

Chapter Donor Benefits

 

We greatly appreciate all members who have contributed to the success of the Houston Space Chapter, whether with their time, their finances, or other resources.  For our chapter donors, we provide special benefits to express our gratitude.  (You do have the option to decline or redirect any benefits you desire.  For instance, if you are not attending the Professional Development Conference, but are a Diamond Donor, you can redirect the $100 PDC expense benefit towards any other NSBE conference expense; or if you do not wish the benefit in any form you may decline it altogether, redirecting the funding towards our general budget, another member’s conference expenses, or any NSBE-HSC budget line item.)
