GAL Membership Grant Program

Due to the economic downturn we are offering a limited number of one-year grants to help offset the cost of membership to luthiers who are experiencing economic hardship. New or renewing members are welcome to take advantage of this grant program, and we would especially like to encourage younger folks to participate.

This grant program is on the honor system - please pick the level that fits your need. Funds are limited, so if you can afford to chip-in half, that will make more grants available to more members.

Grants are being offered at two levels:

Full grant - $5 annual dues ($60 grant)
Half grant - $30 annual dues ($35 grant)

We cannot cover postage costs for memberships outside the US, so $13 will be added to your dues.
