Indian Section is Abolishing Admission Fees and Annual Dues
It is planning to do it since the Section is self sustaining. It is anticipated it will bring in 2,000 additional members. Indian Section knows more money will not bring in members. It is sending a message to all Sections in the World to follow.
The situation is sad in USA. There is constant request for donations even with large donations from Kern Foundation ($1million) and other affluent Lodges (Cleveland Lodge sending out all their money & not helping local needs). Now a special effort in place to bring in more money (Fetzer Trust is helping with funding). All this with $16million in the bank. Money is not increasing membership and numbers going down every day.
When Theosophy was launched, HPB and HSO were poor and penniless. Without money theosophy was spread by them. American Section can follow the lead of Indian Section and hopefully it would help bring in more members and fix the diversity problem.
