We, the members of the Bellingham Tenants Union, are the BTU. Together we decide how our organization runs and what it does, and together we fund its projects and campaigns.
Member dues are a monthly contribution to the union to sustain us. They are a recurring contribution will be automatically charged to your payment method.
You choose your own dues based on your ability to pay (including if you cannot pay at all).
Member dues keep our union independent and member-driven. We are not reliant on money from big donors, corporations, foundations, or government agencies – so we are not beholden to them.
Member dues are essential to keep the union going. Our member dues pay for our website, printing costs, union 501c4 fees, and other materials needed for campaigns. Dues also build our political power: if we vote to endorse pro-tenant, pro-housing candidates, we can donate as a union to help elect them.
