Membership Fees, Subscriptions & Donations
The sums quoted in the tariff column in the table below are the suggested annual financial contribution for each category of membership or subscription.
The tariff is 50% set membership fee or subscription rate and 50% suggested voluntary donation.
Set membership fees and subscriptions are kept as low as the Club can afford in pursuit of the Club’s charitable objective of encouraging healthy participation in sport for all.
However, it costs much more to provide the Club’s rowing facilities than the total income from membership fees and subscriptions and so the Club’s continued success is dependent on voluntary donations.
Ross Rowing Club Limited is a Charitable Community Benefit Society, registered with the Financial Conduct Authority and HMRC. 2016-07-14 HMRC letter confirming RRC Ltd charitable status. This allows us to claim back through the Gift Aid scheme tax you have paid on any donations.
When you follow the links to pay for your membership you will first pay your set fee through the WebCollect service, after which you will receive a link to the Virgin Money Giving service where you can make your donation.
