Individual Membership

Membership as an individual member directly affiliated to the Goetheanum is intended for those people who cannot or do not wish to be connected with a local group, or for whom there is not much point in local membership (frequent change of residence, student, etc.). 

Membership application
You can submit your membership application directly to the Goetheanum online or in writing (form in pdf format). The form may also be used to apply to a country society or a branch. 

"Anthroposophy worldwide" newsletter
As an individual member, you will receive ten issues per year of Anthroposophy worldwide, the newsletter of the General Anthroposophical Society, as well as other information about conferences and courses at the Goetheanum. 

Membership contribution
The standard annual membership contribution is currently CHF 300.-/approx. EUR 280.-/approx US$ 330.-. But members are encouraged to set the level of their membership contribution to take account of their financial situation. Thus students or members from countries with weak economies might contribute less; at the same time other members ensure that a balance is maintained by contributing more than the standard rate. Nevertheless a minimum amount of EUR 40.- / US$ 55.- is required to cover our basic expenses. Please realise, that the work and existence of the Anthroposophical Society is only based on membership contribution and donations. Thank you.
