★ The Dulwich Society now accepts payment by Direct Debit ★
Please choose from one of the following two options:
Dulwich Society membership with Gift Aid (recommended for UK tax payers)
Dulwich Society membership without Gift Aid
Your Gift Aid Declaration
When you choose the option to pay by Direct Debit with Gift Aid you confirm the following declaration: I wish The Dulwich Society to treat all subscriptions I make to the society from the date of this declaration until I notify you otherwise as Gift Aid donations, enabling it to reclaim tax paid on these payments. I will advise the society if at any time I cease to meet the conditions set out in the note below.
Without Gift Aid
Choose this option if you do not pay UK tax or if you are donating on behalf of someone else or jointly. If you do not wish to make a Gift Aid declaration at the present time you can make one at a later date if you choose to do so.
About Gift Aid
Donating through Gift Aid means charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It will not cost you any extra. You can include all donations from the last 4 years. Tell the charity about any tax years where you did not pay enough tax. Your donations will qualify as long as they’re not more than 4 times what you have paid in tax in that tax year (6 April to 5 April). You must tell the charities you support if you stop paying enough tax. Additional information is available from https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid
Paying by Standing Order
You can also pay for Membership by standing order. Please Download our Application Form (PDF) and post it to the address shown below.
How you benefit from Membership
With over a thousand household members, the Society has a powerful voice with local councillors, councils, and the Dulwich Estate. It believes that the Estate should apply the Scheme of Management positively - in line with its declared purpose of "enabling them to preserve the amenities of the Estate for the common benefit." The Society meets the Estate Trustees and Managers three times a year but is in frequent contact with their staff.
To keep you informed of what is going on in Dulwich we publish a quarterly printed Journal and a monthly eNewsletter free to our members. We maintain this website, three Twitter accounts and an Instagram account. We also publish an annual ‘Dulwich Gardens open for Charity’ booklet. Talks and expertly-led walks and tours are arranged during the year.
Most of our activities are organised through sub-committees: Gardens; Local History; Planning and Architecture; Travel and Environment; Trees, and Wildlife. More details on their activities are contained elsewhere on this website.
