Membership Fees and Types of Membership
The membership year of Southampton U3A is April 2018 - March 2019.
The full annual membership fee is £20.00, including a £3.50 capitation fee to our national organisation, the Third Age Trust, which provides a wide range of services and benefits. (Members who already belong to another U3A, ie dual membership", do not need to pay this.)
For new members who join on or after 1st February 2018 the membership fee covers up to 31st March 2019.
For new members who join between 1st October 2018 and 31st January 2019 the first year's membership fee is halved.
The fees include an emailed bi-monthly newsletter which informs you of what is happening in our U3A. If you require a printed copy of the newsletter, there is an additional charge of £10.00 for the year.
A summary of the fees is as follows:
Full (email newsletter) £20.00 (or if joining between Oct-March £10.00)

Please note, the Gift Aid declaration below applies if you choose to select YES in the Gift Aid box on your online Application Form, or if you intend to give Gift Aid in the future. If you do not select Gift Aid, and you do not intend to give Gift Aid in the future, then you can disregard the following Gift Aid statement.
I would like Southampton U3A (registered charity no. 1057642) to treat as a Gift Aid donation my annual subscription and subsequent payments I make from the date of this declaration until I notify you otherwise. I pay UK Income Tax each year at least equal to the tax reclaimed and I will notify you if I cease to do so.
Southampton U3A will only use your email address in relation to their administration and associated activities, but it will be the main method of communication.
EMERGENCY CONTACT NUMBER
We encourage all members to provide an emergency contact number of someone who is unlikely to be participating in a U3A activity at the same time as yourself. This will only be used in case of emergency during U3A activities (e.g. someone taken ill, or had an accident).
MEMBER DETAILS RETENTION
By submission of the online joining form you agree to the inclusion of your details in the Southampton U3A membership website database. The database will only be used for administration purposes in line with the Southampton U3A Data Protection Policy, a copy of which can be viewed here.
