The Black Bear Brotherhood (BBB) will begin accepting donations and membership dues in April 2019 to ensure all donations are tax-deductible through our fiscal sponsor. Until April 2019, donations submitted to BBB are not tax deductible.
Chapter-based BBB member dues are voluntary at this time and are $10 a month. If you are paying member dues through the website, please indicate in the "Note" section which chapter location your dues are going to support. Dues and donations support what are primarily free community programs and events in the areas that the BBB operates in, providing much-needed resources to supplement event costs.
At this time, the Black Bear Brotherhood is an all-volunteer organization with only stipends and honorariums going to guests and members to compensate them for critical logistics, service, moderator or facilitation roles. We have no paid full or part-time staff.
Thank you in advance for your generous contribution to the Black Bear Brotherhood.
