Make Your Membership Gift in Installments

We are pleased to offer monthly payment programs for our members’ convenience. With a monthly plan, you may choose to become a member only for the current grant cycle OR to have your membership renew automatically in subsequent years.

Monthly payment plans have two components:

  • A monthly payment that depends on the level of membership you choose ($86 for Members; $43 for Young Members; $100, $125 or $150 for Sustaining Members); and
  • A one-time catch-up payment (if needed) that depends on when you initiate the plan.

Your first monthly payment and catch-up payment will be processed immediately. Future payments will be processed at one-month intervals.

You may cancel your monthly plan at any time by notifying us in writing at If you cancel your plan before paying the basic membership contribution of $1000 or $500, depending on age, your membership will cease, but your contributions will remain in the Grant Fund and be part of the grants awarded that year. Your donations are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Support the Many Hands Fund for the Future

Thanks to the initiative of a generous donor, in 2020 the Many Hands Board established the Fund for the Future in order to enhance the future sustainability of Many Hands. The Fund functions essentially like an endowment and serves as a long-term investment vehicle for unrestricted gifts and bequests. Distributions from the fund will support Many Hands’ operating needs, such as educational events, special projects, and Board and/or member training.
