To support our mission of outreach and education, Madison Babywearing raises funds through the sale of memberships, which are considered tax-deductible donations.
Benefits of Membership
The cost of membership is $30/year, and will provide you with:
- monthly access to the lending library (up to 2 carriers loaned per month),
- members-only events and benefits,
- ability to support the continued operation of the organization and further outreach efforts to make babywearing accessible throughout the Madison community.
Becoming a Member
You can become a member at any of our meetings. A volunteer will work with you to get you signed up in the lending library system, and you can pay with cash, check, credit/debit card, or PayPal at the meeting.
Membership is Optional
You are NOT required to be a member of Madison Babywearing to attend our monthly meetings or participate in most group events. If you choose not to obtain a membership, you will be able to pay a nominal fee to check out carriers from the lending library.
Madison Babywearing membership also makes a great gift for new parents and caregivers! If you would like to give the gift of babywearing to someone you know, please contact us for information about how to gift a membership and offer them the opportunity to explore babywearing through use of our extensive lending library.
You can also purchase a sponsor membership that will be provided to a family in our community. Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring a membership.
Our leadership team works diligently to offer free or reduced memberships to those that would otherwise not be able to afford the annual fee. We are able to offer a limited number of scholarships, and there may be a wait if we do not have the funds to currently provide a scholarship.
We also have available a limited number of membership scholarships, earmarked at this point only for families with children with developmental special needs. These scholarships were donated by the organization Lift Me Up: Babywearing to Thrive, and allow us to expand our lending library to meet the specific needs of these families.
If you, or someone you know, is eligible for these scholarships, please contact our leadership team.
