Many of the goals and activities of Sekhet-Maat Lodge require a monetary aspect alongside our creativity and industry. Initiations, the Gnostic Mass, our temple, and many other projects are strongly impacted by our financial health. By making donations and paying dues on a timely basis, our members are directly helping the Lodge and our community fulfill our goals and manifest our vision.
Sekhet-Maat Lodge Member Dues
The fundamental requirement for membership with Sekhet-Maat Lodge is the payment of local dues. Local dues are currently $50 a month (which does not include Grand Lodge dues). Payment can be made in one yearly sum of $600 or broken up into installments (i.e. $50 monthly).
How to Pay Dues
Dues to Sekhet-Maat Lodge can be paid in four ways:
- Paypal. Use the links to the right. No account necessary – just a credit or debit card.
- Mail. Send checks payable to “Sekhet-Maat Lodge” to 7950 SE Foster Road, Portland, OR 97206.
Write “SML Dues” in the memo.
- Dropbox. Place dues + a note with your name in one of the envelopes by the temple dropbox.
Leave envelope in dropbox next to the office door.
- By Hand. Hand your dues to the Lodge Treasurer in person.
What if I can’t pay local dues for a while?
We know that everyone can experience tough times. If you can’t pay dues for a short time, speak with the Lodge Treasurer about your situation.
Donations and Pledges
The Lodge gratefully accepts donations, including furniture, appliances, artwork, costumes, ritual equipment, tools, office supplies, cleaning supplies, bath items, hardware, etc. We have limited space and needs, so please ask before dropping anything off at the Temple. Contact the Lodge Treasurer with questions.
You may also choose to pledge financial assistance or make a monetary donation to the Lodge, even if you are not a member. Such payments can be made in one sum or pledged over installments of your choosing. You may make such generous payments the same four ways as with dues. If you choose to use Paypal, you can use the form titled “One-Time Payments & Donations” on this page.
If you have turned in an application for an upcoming initiation, you may pay your initiation fee here even if the ceremony is not yet scheduled. Again, you can make payment using the same four methods as with dues (see above). If you choose to use Paypal, you can use the form titled “One-Time Payments & Donations” on this page.
