Full Member Subscriptions (recommended)

How to cancel a subscription

Simply email asking to cancel. If you have a PayPal account, be sure to log in and pause / cancel the recurring subscription.

Note to Directors: if the member doesn't have a PayPal account, follow these steps.

One Time Payment

One time payments can be made in person, using:

  • Cash (Please double-count it and get a computer-generated receipt)

We don't currently accept Tangerine payments (Tangerine Customers should choose the "Interac" option).

Friends of Protospace

Our Friends are valued supporters and donors who believe in Protospace, but don't necessarily participate. Some are former members who have moved away. Some are parents or guardians of underage student members, or spouses of members. Other are just enthusiastic supporters of the maker culture. Friends are always welcome in the space, but they must be accompanied by a member except at public events. Friends cannot vote on member issues, and may have limited access to some tools or programs. We love and thank our friends for their donations and support!

Annual Donation of $110 per year | Monthly Donation of $10 per month | One-time Donation of $10

Friends usually donate $10 per month, or $110 per year. Larger donations may be made through a director or as a one-time payment.

Which Payment Method is "best"?

Thanks for asking. Seriously. It's great that members want to get the best bang for our membership buck!

The "best" method is an automatic monthly PayPal subscription.

Other payment methods (like cash, Square, Interact, or e-Transfer) all require manual processing and increase our volunteer's workload.

You can set up a subscription on the Member Portal.
