Alcor Associate Membership

Supporters of Alcor who are not yet ready to make cryopreservation arrangements can become an Associate Member for $5 per month (or $60 per year). Associate Members are members of the Alcor Life Extension Foundation who have not made cryonics arrangements but financially support the organization. Associate Members will receive:

  • Printed copies of Cryonics magazine in the mail unless they are outside the U.S. or they notify us that they would rather have an electronic copy.
  • Discounts on Alcor conferences.
  • Access to post in the Alcor Member Forums.

To become an Associate Member use our Associate Membership Form to send a check, money order, or credit card information ($5 per month or $60 per year) to Alcor Life Extension Foundation, 7895 E. Acoma Dr., Suite 110, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260, or call Marji Klima at (480) 905-1906 ext. 101 with your credit card information.

Or you can pay online via PayPal using the Join button below (quarterly option is not available this way). Please note that this will set up automatic recurring charges of either $5 per month or $60 per year. You do not need a PayPal account to make a payment to Alcor (however, your browser will need to accept a harmless PayPal cookie or you will get an error message). If you want to receive Cryonics magazine, be sure to include your name and mailing address.

Alcor Associate Membership

You may stop the automatic dues payments at any time either by contacting Alcor or, if you have a PayPal account, by following PayPal’s directions.

Associate Members can improve their chances of being cryopreserved in an emergency if they complete and provide us with a Declaration of Intent to be Cryopreserved. Financial provisions would still have to be made by you or someone acting for you, but the combination of Associate Membership and Declaration of Intent meets the informed consent requirement and makes it much more likely that we could move ahead in a critical situation.

Persons who have submitted an application for full membership to Alcor will automatically become Associate Members while their application is pending.
