Membership Payment

We have various methods that you can make a payment to the Elgar Society for your membership. Please note…

Upon joining the Society members must pay the applicable subscription. Thereafter, payment of subscriptions is due on 1 January each year.

Gift Aid: Gift Aid is an income tax relief designed to benefit charities. If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your subscription by 25% because the Society can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift at no extra cost to you.  You are encouraged to complete the Gift Aid form linked above.

A standing Order can be cancelled at any time.
