You are interested in becoming a member of the “Association of Friends of the U-boat Tradition Archive (FTU)”? We would be very pleased! There are two options for membership.
1. Full membership
Annual dues for full membership are 40,00 Euros in compliance with the resolution of the Annual General Meeting of 06 April 2002. However, the fee is not deductable from one´s taxable income since the objective of the FTU is strictly set to create financial support for the U-boat Archive. Active members have committed themselves for 10 hours per year voluntary work for the archive. In case of non-compliance with that, the respective member is requested to donate 5,00 Euros per each hour not carried out.
2. Fellow membership
This type of membership might be a good opportunity for those, who would like to get a receipt for their donations or who cannot commit themselves to voluntary work, while at the same time enjoying the privileges of membership (e.g. the yearbook, reduced fees for research, rebates on books, etc.).
Fellow members may donate either on the archive´s special account IBAN DE 75 2415 0001 0000 1542 03, BIC: BRLADE21CUX, to be entitled to a receipt of a donation of 200,00 Euros or more for tax claims (under that amount a simple receipt will be sent). Or, when none of such receipts is required they may transfer their donation to the archive´s special account IBAN DE 97 2415 0001 0000 1541 95, BIC BRLADE21CUX.
Since fellow member are not required for any voluntary work (also: no donation requested to compensate any non-compliance with the commitment for voluntary hours), their annual dues should not be less than 60,00 Euros per year.
