What does my membership fee pay for?

Your contribution is a source of core funding for a wide variety of worthwhile environmental causes and projects. Essentially, membership fees are an independent source of funding which allows the Ecology Action Centre to continue its efforts for the benefit of all citizens in the province.

What do I have to do as a member?

While volunteering your time with the EAC is certainly appreciated, it is by no means required. In fact most of our members support our efforts in other ways, like attending special events and expressing public support for many of our campaigns. Just being a member of the EAC makes our voice louder. The more members we have, the more influence we have, and thus the greater our ability to make a difference in Nova Scotia.

I don’t have time to volunteer, how can I support the EAC otherwise?

You are not alone; many of our members simply do not have the time to dedicate on a regular basis due to a variety of reasons. If this is the case, you can support our work simply by adding your name to our membership list. There is strength in numbers; we establish our force from our members. Become a member today!

I can’t afford a membership right now, but I would like to get involved, what should I do?

We encourage everyone to become a member. We have some of the lowest membership fees among NGOs in the province; for students and unwaged it is only $25/year! If you cannot afford a membership, the EAC will still welcome you with open arms. There is lots of work to be done! Select a committee, or project, or come work in our office!

Why does it matter if I join the Ecology Action Centre or not?

With a healthy and robust membership the Ecology Action Centre can truly state that we represent a larger portion of Nova Scotia’s population, and this in turn gives us greater influence. It lets decision makers know that the public at large is aware and concerned about the environmental issues facing the province. Your voice matters!

Besides that, your neighbors and friends are more likely to get involved and support environmental change when they see so many others are already taking part!

What do I get with my membership?

The Ecology Action Centre is a registered non-profit society with charitable status. When you become a member of EAC, you will receive a tax receipt. You will also receive a subscription to our triannual magazine Ecology and  Action. The magazine is a great resource for environmental information in Nova Scotia, school projects, or just general interest. Should you choose to provide email contact information, you will also receive a bi-weekly e-newsletter, keeping you up-to-date with recent campaigns and upcoming events.
