Become a Member :

 
If you support the vision and goals of Dir Biyabir, we invite you to join us by becoming a member. If you are already a member, we invite you to renew your membership annually. Membership is open to any interested person, and there are no responsibilities other than paying the membership fees annually. 100% of membership fees are used to fund projects, so funding new grassroots projects in Ethiopia is directly dependent upon increasing our membership base.
 
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS: Our membership dues simply ensure a minimum amount of financial support for grassroots projects in Ethiopia. The more members we have, or the higher the level of membership, the more projects we can sponsor in Ethiopia.  It's a numbers game, the more members, the stronger our "web". Currently Dir Biyabir has 63 members. If you like the kinds of projects we sponsor, the best way to support these projects is to join us as a member and see if you can get your friends and family to join too!
 
All of Dir Biyabir’s administrative expenses are covered by the Executive team, so that 100% of your membership fees and donations will go directly to support our project work in Ethiopia.
 
There are four levels of membership as outlined below. All membership fees are 100% tax deductible and we will email a tax receipt to you. 
 

THERE ARE FOUR LEVELS OF MEMBERSHIP:

  • Silver Member: $100 per calendar year
  • Gold Member: $200 per calendar year
  • Platinum Member: $500 per calendar year
  • Diamond Member: $1,000 per calendar year
In order to propose a new project for Dir Biyabir to support, we require Gold membership at a minimum 
 
 

A - Join Dir Biyabir

You can become a member of Dir Biyabir by simply paying the membership dues in one of the following ways:

BY CHECK

Please make check payable to Dir Biyabir and mail to us at the following address. Please include your email on your check so we can send you a receipt and occasional project updates (your email will not be provided to any groups or organizations whatsoever): 
     Dir Biyabir 
     P.O. Box 391532        
     Mountain View, CA 94039

VIA PAYPAL

 

 
 
 

B - Renew Your Dir Biyabir Membership

 

We rely on the continued support of our members to fund our projects in Ethiopia. Membership is annual and can be paid any time within a calendar year. You can renew your membership by simply paying the membership dues for a given year in one of the two methods below.  We highly encourage our members to renew their membership by June of each calendar year as this frees up our scarce volunteer time and effort to focus on projects rather than on sending reminders for membership renewal.

 

AUTO RENEWAL
Due to strong interest from our members for auto-renewal of membership, we are now offering a new Paypal option that will allow our members to select "Subscription" payment, i.e you can choose to have PayPal automatically send us your membership dues once a year. If you are interested in this option please use the PayPal "Subscribe" button below and you will no longer need to worry about sending in your payment for membership as PayPal will send it to us every 12 months from the date of your subscription.  
If you choose this option, we highly recommend you "subscribe" early in the calendar year (i.e before April).  This way, you will not receive renewal reminder emails from us for the rest of the year.  You can cancel auto-renewal anytime you want via PayPal.  We hope you find this new option helpful!

If you do not want to sign up for auto-renewal, you can still renew your membership every year by check or via PayPal.  We will send you reminders on a quarterly basis.
