JDiF has three categories of membership and associated annual dues.

  1. Regular Membership: 15 euros

  2. Youth (under 25 years old) Membership: 10 euros

  3. Student Membership: 10 euros

As one of the ways of supporting our community during the pandemic, we are waiving membership dues until further notice. Members who signed up before December 12, 2020 and paid dues will still get an extra year of membership free, counting from the date of expiration of the free membership offer, whichever is later.

Sponsorship

As part of, and throughout our operations to fulfill our objectives, JaDiF will participate in and host various activities and events. As a not-for-profit organisation, we are dependent on the sponsorship of such activities and events to implement them. We will be publishing our events throughout the year, and will be inviting companies (and individuals) to sponsor them. In return, companies will receive the following benefits:

  1. Build brand awareness: Generating exposure in an inexpensive manner, relative to more expensive advertising campaigns

  2. Demonstrate corporate and social responsibility: Establishing rapport with existing and potential customers by showing generosity, dependability and support

  3. Increase reach: Getting to an audience that is wider than those who participate in the activities and events through extended exposure and visibility generated by promotions channels used by the organisation

Look out for our activities and events; however,  we invite you to sign up so that you can be notified directly of sponsorship opportunities as soon as they arise.

 

Donation

We rely on the generosity of people like you to be able to fund many of the activities of the JaDiF organization. We appreciate your interest in supporting us through your tax-deductible donation, and thank you.

We uphold the highest levels of transparency and accountability in how donated funds are spent. As such, we invite you to contact us with any questions you may have about our operations. In particular, we will provide you with information about how your donation is used.
