PVS Members have been the mainstay of support to PVS for four decades. Our contributing members today are allowing us to voyage beyond the boundaries of Polynesia to inspire a global movement to mālama honua, care for our island earth. This important legacy can only be realized with your collective support and we thank you for your commitment.

New and returning members receive a 15% discount to the PVS Store. Contributions of $5 or more are eligible for a member decal, and $100 or more are eligible for a T-shirt. Because we rely on volunteers to distribute member-gifts, shipments can take up to 30 days. Due to costly shipping, we ship only to U.S. addresses. Decals and shirts will mail to recurring givers when their contributed amounts have totaled/surpassed $5 and $100 respectively.

By choosing to give through a recurring donation, you are helping to sustain PVS for decades to come. Setting up a recurring gift is secure, easy and convenient. Recurring gifts reduce administration costs and allows for better forecasting and planning. Whether it’s to pay for classroom handouts or to upgrade safety equipment for crewmembers, your member contribution can be used where it’s most effective.

We greatly appreciate all support including donations and contributions from our members. Generally, our contributing members receive discounts to the PVS store and are eligible for annual member-gifts.
