The Ladysmith Community Fund Society works much as a community foundation does, but, unlike foundations, which do not have memberships, LCFS is a registered society, and we are working to build a membership.

Why join LCFS? It’s a benefit to the society, which uses your membership dollars to help cover expenses like web hosting, printing, insurance and other things. The benefit to members is the knowledge that they are helping LCFS achieve its goals in the community we share. As we grow, we will also involve members on committees and in other activities.

Our membership year runs from January to December.We have four membership categories:

  • Single (Regular) Member: $25.00
  • Family/Not-for-profit/Small Business Member $35.00
  • Supporter $75.00
  • Corporate Member $150.00

We will soon be adding a downloadable membership form, but for now please contact us on the contacts page and we will email you a membership form.

You may pay your membership by cash; please use the Contact form to arrange pickup. A cheque payable to the Ladysmith Community Fund Society can be mailed to: c/o 1031 Dunsmuir Crescent, Ladysmith, BC, V9G 1N7. You can also pay by E-transfer. Thank you!
