Society members participate in determining SOFREE actions.
They receive monthly bulletins that provide information about SOFREE activities and events that SOFREE supports, or which provide group benefits.
Society membership ensures that the members are included in all notices about events and are eligible to attend all events.
Society members are a part of a mutual support community.
Society Membership fees are kept to a minimum that will provide operating revenue and assume that people who are able will also donate to the SOFREE on the donation page.
Children under 18 are considered to be members when a parent is a member. Students who are under 18 and wish to join autonomously require a parent or guardian’s written permission. Student memberships apply to those who are able to provide a student number.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: SOFREE works on an annual membership payment system that goes from March to March. People who join from March to January pay a prorated fee. People joining in January get an extra two months free.
