Local Dues

Help Fund Your Chapter!

Use this form to donate local dues to Silicon Valley DSA. In accordance with our bylaws, local dues do not confer membership rights or any other privileges. Information on who is paying voluntary local dues shall be restricted to officers and as needed for specific purposes. Individuals shall not retain this information. Donors may cancel their dues at any time. If requested, past dues may be returned at the discretion of the Chapter Committee.

Local dues will go directly to the general fund of SV DSA, and may be used for chapter expenses in accord with our Bylaws. SV DSA is a 501c4 non-profit , and donations are not tax deductible. To cancel a recurring donation, email treasurer@siliconvalleydsa.org.
