Lifetime Membership

You Are Cordially Invited to Join the Guild as a Lifetime Member

Lifetime membership is a new and exciting membership option for those who wish to declare their timeless support of the Guild by making a commitment to Guild membership for life.


  • Never write a check for AGO membership renewal again! AGO National Headquarters will remit the chapter portion of your membership dues to the local chapter of your choice on an annual basis, or you can join as a lifetime independent member.
  • Enjoy the flexibility and the opportunity to designate the corpus of your Lifetime membership dues upon your death to one of the following funds: the AGO Endowment Fund, New Organist Fund, Nita Akin Fund, or National Council-Designated Endowment, which supports general operations.
  • Your name will be published in THE AMERICAN ORGANIST Magazine annually and posted on the AGO Web site.


Lifetime Membership is available for $3,000, either as a lump sum or payable over six years.
