You can become a member of our chapter right from this page. Why become a member?
- Our members are the backbone of our success. Our chapter is an all-volunteer organization, who receives no monetary support from PFLAG National, and is funded only by memberships and donations.
- Our membership fees enables us to provide support and resources to LGBTQ people and their families, right here in the Eastside, putting your dollars to work in your own community.
- Our membership amplifies the voices speaking out for LGBTQ equality and against the current backlash. Our power lies in our numbers, where each and every PFLAG member increases our strength.
- Our chapter sends a portion of your membership dues each year to PFLAG National in Washington DC, automatically making you also a member of PFLAG National. You receive a PFLAG bookstore discount and free access to PFLAG Academy Online.
- Our chapter, like PFLAG National, is a non profit, so your membership typically qualifies as a tax deduction. In some cases you can receive matching corporate funds, too. We also offer a range of rates, to meet your needs. (See upcoming sections for full details.)
Note: If you are interested in joining PFLAG Bothell/Northshore, a satellite chapter of PFLAG Bellevue/Eastside, you can also do so from this page. Simply check “Bothell/Northshore” on the online (or hard copy) application form.
