Donor support is an essential component of PGSA’s budgetary model. PGSA is a 100% volunteer, member-driven organization, with no paid staff.
Every dollar we receive goes toward fulfilling our genealogical mission and providing member services and programming. PGSA’s leadership team strives to provide a broad array of services and resources to members and non-members alike, including our annual Conferences, publications, online store, member research services, webinars, and Poland tours (new in 2019).
We strive to provide outstanding value for every membership dollar we receive, and we are proud to say that the PGSA family encompasses nearly 1,800 members across the USA and internationally. As a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, your donation to PGSA is also tax-deductible.
There are several ways you can provide donor support. Many members have chosen to become Lifetime Members. You can go online and click on the DONATE button located on the front page of our website (which uses both PayPal, or your debit/credit card of choice), or you can also mail us a check with your donation *. Here is a PGSA Donation Form that you can use with your mail-in Donation. Donations are accepted throughout the year, so please consider donating today.
