LIONS FAMILY DUES BREAKS - March 17, 2014
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS
International Lions $43.00 International Lions $21.50
Iowa Lions $18.65 Iowa Lions $ 9.83
District 9NW $ 7.50 District 9NW $ 7.50
Sioux City Lions $22.85 Sioux City Lions $22.85
Total $92.00 Total $61.68
An International Lions Clubs (ILC) first-time only non-pro-rated $25 fee is required of all new members .
A reduced family dues structure was initiated a few years ago as International and Iowa Lions each reduced their dues for up to four others living in the household of the “head of household”who pays full dues. Same-household residency is not required for family members under age 26 if pursuing higher education or serving in their country’s military.
Example: A husband and wife yearly dues for July 1- June 30 ar $92.00 + 61.68 or $153.68. Add the $25 first-time only fee for each of them unless the are a student or verteran.
Example: If joining in March, pro-rated dues are 4/12 of $92.00 or $30.67 (add $25 as above if first time member) = 55.67 and each family member’s dues are 4/12 of $61.68 or $20.49 + $25 = 45.49. The first time only member fee is not pro-rated.
Sioux City Lions Club Members can pay $46.00 semiannually on July 1 and January 1. Family members can pay $30.84 on July 1 and January 1.
Members are dropped from rosters if dues are not paid by October 1. Dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution. However, if you own a business, they may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense.
FROM INTERNATIONAL LIONS:
FAMILY MEMBERS. The Family Membership Program provides families with the opportunity to receive a special dues discount when they join a Lions club together. The first family member (head of household) pays full international dues (US$43), and up to four additional family members pay only half the international dues (US$21.50). All family members pay the one-time International Lions fee of US$25 unless they are a veteran or student. The one-time only fee of $25 is not part of the total pro-rated dues.
The Family Membership Program is open to family members who are (1) eligible for Lions membership, (2) currently in or joining the same club, and (3) living in the same household and related by birth, marriage or other legal relationship. Common household family members include parents, children, spouses, aunts and uncles, cousins, grandparents, in-laws and legal dependents.
Family membership is limited to no more than five qualifying members per household, and new clubs must have a minimum of ten full-paying members. Same-household residency is not required for family members under age 26 if they are pursuing higher education or serving in their country’s military.
