Support & Payments

Your contribution matters!

Your financial support helps the SML Democrats:
• Introduce Democratic candidates to the lake area.
• Conduct business at its office location.
• Provide social gatherings for members.

Type of Support

  • Pay your annual membership dues. Dues are $20 per member each year. If you pay through PayPal, you will need to pay for each member individually.

    Please help us keep donations for club activities by covering the cost of PayPal. This will be automatically calculated for you when you submit payment, but you will have to authorize adding the extra amount to cover the cost of PayPal. See below for an example under Electronic Payment.
  • Donate to the Annual Office Fund. The Annual Fund allows us to continue operations. You can choose to make a general donation or help with a particular need. (See more below.)
  • Make a general donation to the SML Democrats.
  • Reserve your place at one of our social events. We gather at local restaurants and businesses not only to enjoy each other’s company, but also to support local businesses. We do have to pay for the food and drinks!

Please note that the SML Democrats is not a tax exempt organization, so your contribution is not tax deductible.

Payment Options

Electronic Payment

Click on the PayPal image below to make your payment or donation electronically. You will have a choice to use PayPal or use your debit or credit card.

Please consider selecting the box to pay the service fee on the PayPal page. When you use the link below and enter your dollar amount to pay, it will automatically calculate the total that PayPal charges us to use the electronic service, and this amount will appear next to the service fee box.

PayPal charges us a transaction fee of $.50 as well as a service fee of 3% of the total you are paying. For example, your membership fee of $20 costs us $1.10; that’s $.50 for the set transaction fee and an additional $.60 for the 3% service fee of your total ($20). So, if you help us pay the service fee of $1.10, it means we get the full amount you intended to pay ($20).
