WHY SHOULD I BECOME A BEAR CAFÉ New York, Inc. MEMBER?
Reason #1: With Regular Membership at only $20 (and Limited Income Membership at $15), we are one of the least expensive men’s social groups in New York City.
Reason #2: Each member receive a membership card and quarterly mailings about our events.
Reason #3: A Bear Cafe membership is necessary for reduced price admission into BC-Mates events ($5), Center “Furball” Dances ($6), and other Bear events. (Note: Non-members Visitors to BC pay $10.)
Reason #4: Each member gets a FREE admission for every six (6) paid admissions. (Note: A possible 2 free admissions possible each year.)
Reason #5: Your membership fee helps us to pay our Overhead expenses like Board Meeting Space Rental, Telephone Service, P.O. Box, Postage, Locker Rental, Website, PR, and Administrative supplies expenses.
Reason #6: Your membership fee also helps to pay a chunk of our Event expenses like Space Rental (30.4% of our budget), Hospitality Supplies, Furball Donations, and Program Expenses like renting Sound Systems.
Reason #7: Your membership helps you stay connected with the men’s community in Metro-New York City (both current, and new friends)… we care about our BC members and wonder when folks ‘disappear’! Coming to our events on a regular basis not only insures the financial stability of BEAR CAFÉ and MATES Coffee House, but allows you to pick up Gay literature at The Center to stay informed of what’s happening in the larger LGBT community.
Reason #8: You can take PRIDE in knowing that you are helping insure that the ONLY Alcohol-Free Social Alternative and Supplement to the Bars and Clubs for Men will continue to be here for your enjoyment this year and into the future.
