Development Trusts are most successful when they have the support of their local communities. The more Members our Trust has from the Dollar community, the more credibility we have to take forward projects, secure funding and influence decisions made about where we live.  

Being a Member does not carry any obligations but does have benefits. As a Member, you’re entitled to cast a vote at our AGM, elect Trustees and submit resolutions.  We’ll also keep you up-to-date on what the Trust is doing and how you can contribute to decision making. In addition, tickets for certain community events go on sale to Members early. That said, our work aims to benefit Dollar as a whole community. 

Membership is now free and is automatically renewed annually unless you write to us to opt out. 

There are 2 ways you can become a Member:

  1. Offline: Pick up a Membership form at the Hive and return the completed form to the Hive. Please address it to the DCDT Membership Secretary. 
  2. Online: Complete and submit the Online Membership Form below.

Become a Friend of the Trust

Our existence and growth depend on a stable income and volunteer base. We also know that some people want to support the Trust but don’t have spare time to volunteer.

To this end, we have established a ‘Friends of the Trust’ scheme. Our Friends are individuals who have committed to making a regular donation to the Trust to support our work. Most importantly, our Friends Scheme will help ensure that the Trust is truly supported by the community we serve. 

Every donation counts, so please support us by becoming a Friend of the Trust by clicking here.

You can be a Member AND a Friend of the Trust.
