You’ve heard it here before: if SAGE-RI isn’t already important to you, it should be! Help us ensure that your next decades (whatever your age may be today) are lived with the respect, support, and LGBT-competent services you want and deserve. Our recent changes have positioned us to be an even greater force for good. A growing membership will make these efforts stronger and, as we come together, more effective.

Members will be entitled to vote for the Board of Directors, have a stronger voice in setting the organization’s priorities, have greater opportunities to network with peers, be eligible for reduced fees on many events and gatherings, be a part of the national network of SAGE affiliates, and support an organization that has advocated for the LGBT older adult community in Rhode Island since 1997.

Annual dues (which are tax-deductible) are $25 for individuals, $30 for a couple or family, $15 for students or people with limited incomes, and you can become a lifetime member for $500. Checks payable to SAGE-RI should be sent to the address below.
