So if I'm already a member, and I make a donation, what happens?
We thank you for it, and we sing your praises! Additionally, if you donated US$10 or more, then the date of your membership’s expiration moves forward.
Your membership lasts for one year after your most recent donation of US$10 or more. Therefore, if you donate today, your membership will last until one year from today. If you donate as much again tomorrow, your membership will last until one year from tomorrow. And so on.
No matter how much you donate, your membership still only lasts for one year from the most recent US$10-or-more donation, and only confers one vote.
