Please consider joining the SHL. Membership in this organization is open to all persons who support the purposes for which this organization is founded. The available membership levels and corresponding dues are:
  • Individual - New Member $35.00
  • Family - New Member $50.00
  • Individual/Family - Sustaining $100.00
  • Individual/Family - Benefactor $150.00
  • Individual/Family - Lifetime $500.00
Except for the lifetime membership category, those who have paid dues as listed above are considered to be members for a period of one year following the date of payment.

The dues are tax-deductible, as we are a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. (As we like to joke, we are also a "non-prophet" organization!) There are two ways to join/renew:

  1. By Mail: Send a check for your dues made out to "Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry" along with a letter stating your name, your address and (if possible) a phone number and e-mail address to

    Post Office Box 32256

    Charleston, SC 29417

  2. Electronic Payment: You can now join or renew your SHL membership securely online. You do not need a Paypal account to pay using a major credit card. Be sure to select the proper membership level from the drop-down box.

Donate Online

For those who wish to contribute more than just membership dues or who wish to make a donation without joining, you can also use this form to make a donation of any amount to SHL.

(You can also donate to our Charity of the Quarter, a program by which the SHL collects and pools money from our members and gives it to a deserving charity. That money does not directly support our programs, but it does have a positive influence on our community and it helps to demonstrate our humanist ethics better than an equal amount of separate donations from our individuals could.

Employer Identification Number

In case you need it, our EIN is 57-1088657.
