MEMBERSHIP COST EXPLANATION

VRCG is a registered not-for-profit (S-0061792), meaning we try to make as much profit as possible, but the profit doesn’t go to the directors/exec for their personal beer fund but go to VRCG programs, club gear and operation costs. Everyone in the club (including exec.) pays membership.

$30 goes:

- $10 to Federation of Mountain Club BC (a registered charity) to support their charity work to advocate for safe, self-propelled activities and the protection of BC’s backcountry.

- ~$7.50 to club insurance

- $1.17 PayPal fee

- the rest goes to programs and club gear (e.g. ropes, ice tools, etc.)
