TMSLSC wishes to ensure that financial reasons are not a barrier to membership. We are very happy to discuss payment plans with any member who is facing financial hardship. Please contact in confidence.

An alternative to subscriptions:

TMSLSC has set up a Trust to accumulate capital funds to help secure its long term resilience and future. It is a registered charity (CC11263) and accepts donations for its cause. Any person donating $250 or more to the Trust will not be required to pay subscriptions for themselves or their family that year. The Trust will issue a receipt acceptable by Inland Revenue that allows you to claim a third back as a tax rebate. The Trust for its part gets to retain the full amount of the donation whilst the total amount paid for a family membership (once the tax rebate has been claimed) reduces to $165. We strongly recommend consideration of this alternative to subscriptions, particularly for family groups. When opting for the Trust donation, please ensure that every family member registers with SLSNZ.
