At the time of Initiation, every Gamma Phi Beta signs our Loyalty Pledge where each member accepts three lifetime obligations to our Sorority: to recommend women for membership, to remain actively involved and to always meet financial obligations. Financial obligations are dues – both at the collegiate and alumnae level. International alumnae dues are currently $25 annually.
Yes! You can email us or call International Headquarters at 303.799.1874 and we will answer any questions you have*.
*Please allow 5-7 business days for staff to address your inquiry.
Yes! All members who sign up will receive their membership package regardless if they are a collegiate member or alumna member. Since collegiate members are active dues-paying members they will continue to receive The Crescent and the continuous subscription only offered through Life Loyal will officially begin after they become an alumna member. Senior collegiate members are encouraged to sign up upon their graduation to continue to receive membership benefits like a full subscription to The Crescent.
If a Life Loyal membership is purchased for a current collegiate member, Life Loyal dues only cover alumnae dues obligations.
Current collegiate members must still meet all financial obligations to their collegiate chapter.
Life Loyal members pay a one-time membership fee of $299. A discounted membership dues fee of $189 is available for members who have been initiated for 50 years or more*.
*This includes members initiated in or before 1973.
Life Loyal members no longer need to pay international alumnae dues, which are currently $25 each year. A Life Loyal membership is another way for members to fulfill their financial promise to Gamma Phi Beta in one, easy payment. This special program was created to help members – like you – save during their lifetime.
Members of alumnae chapters will continue to pay their local annual alumnae chapter dues separately.
No part of the Life Loyal membership fee is tax deductible.
Life Loyal helps fund collegiate and alumnae chapter operations, membership records and technology, REAL Leadership events and the production of The Crescent – all which help provide positive member experiences.
Due to the rising costs of printing and postage, we find that it isn’t fair for our collegiate members to have to shoulder the majority of the costs of a mostly alumnae-used membership benefit. Life Loyal membership dues fees are placed into a fund to help cover the costs for years to come.
Collegiate members, Life Loyal members and alumnae members who pay their international alumnae dues, either individually or through a local alumnae chapter, receive a copy of The Crescent each year.
