Membership & financial participation


Across the country, members come together to study, to share their quest for meaning, their insights and their aspirations. Together with you, we are devoted to furthering Rudolf Steiner’s work and the anthroposophical movement in the United States.

As General Secretary John Bloom has noted, “A single voice can be very powerful, as we know from Steiner’s work, but the path to bringing ideals into reality is through shared ideas and collaborative actions.” Your membership matters! The basis of membership in the Anthroposophical Society is participation, which takes many forms. It is not dependent on a set financial contribution.

Your membership contribution is vital to the work of anthroposophy in the United States and at the Goetheanum. We ask that you consider your situation and give generously, so that we may continue to serve our members, the movement, and the being of Anthroposophia. We are grateful for your support! It’s easy to renew your membership.
