Membership fees

Membership is a minimum of $12 a month or $144 a year, although please consider increasing your basic giving to keep CPC operating!

As the membership donation comes with benefits - amounts over $144/year are tax deductible to the extent the law allows.

If you are low income/student you may pay $6 a month or $72 a year. You may also request a fee deferral/waiver for up to a year if you are experiencing hardship or for those staff and work-traders under our waiver policy. If you are requesting a waiver or sending in a check put $0 in the custom amount box.

If you want to be a member, we want you to be able to be a member. We'll work with you.

If you are paying for additional household members, increase the amount and note the members name in the text box.

It’s easy to become a member

  • Prospective members must be referred by another current CPC member. Provide the name and contact information of the referring member. 

  • Sign up here with your credit card by completing the form below. Payments can be mailed or charged after membership approval - select $0 in the other payment box to make this choice.

  • This data is encrypted. We're using this system because it is the safest way to deal with credit card numbers.  We don't get to see your credit card number so it is the most secure.

Other methods of payment

  • Mail a check to Circle Pines Center, 8650 Mullen Road, Delton MI 49046

We hope you will consider becoming a member. Also don’t forget to visit Circle Pines Center online and follow Circle Pines Center on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube

Recurring Reminder:

Please Double check the Onetime/Recurring Membership Payment Schedule field - if you choose a one time or annual option, make sure the field does NOT say monthly please.

So we can maintain our database, who else at your residence is a member? Also indicate who you are paying for other than yourself please.

List reason for other amount. If requesting waiver, list reason or note Mailing in check or other details as appropriate. If paying for multiple people, note who etc.

How do you want your name(s) to be listed? Can be "Anonymous" if desired.
