Options for Payment of the FoMA Subscriptions

Members of the Friends of Mount Athos pay a small annual subscription fee, unless they purchase a life membership. The aim is to keep the subscription cost as low as possible so that all can afford it.
The rates described below are defined as "minimum" because it is hoped that those who can will give more to support the work of the Friends on Mount Athos.
Amounts remitted above the base level will be credited to donors as general donations to the Friends of Mount Athos unless they are specified for a current appeal or project.
 
Subscription rates are set in British pounds sterling. Accordingly, subscription rates in dollars and euros may be adjusted from time to time as exchange rates change. The rates quoted on these pages take precedence over rates quoted in printed FoMA documents.
 
Payments are normally made by check, money order, or cash. Other payment options include online payments (credit- or debit-card payments and payments via personal PayPal accounts) and electronic transfer of funds. Members may use our Standing Order Form to initiate automated annual payments by cash transfer. Members using this option will be responsible for advising their banks of any future rate changes.
 
U.K. Citizens only: Because the Friends of Mount Athos are a registered charity in the UK, citizens of the UK are encouraged to make payments via Banker's Order; please see How to Make Your Contributions Worth More.
 
The annual subscription is renewable on 1 January. If membership is initiated between October and December, the first annual subscription also covers the following year.

*Since members living outside of the UK receive the society's mailings by airmail, and to reflect additional costs of administration associated with non-sterling curencies, subscription rates in dollars and euros are somewhat higher, to varing degrees depending upon current exchange rates. Likewise, PayPal payments incur a fee for FoMA, which is covered by the PayPal surcharge of £1.00

Canadian Members Paying in Dollars: Please note that rates are quoted in American dollars. Payments by banker's check or money order should be made out in American dollars if possible. We can accept personal checks written in Canadian dollars, but we ask that you please adjust your payment for the current discount rate if paying by checks in Canadian dollars.
