How much does it cost to be a member?
Membership costs $840 annually for individuals and $1,200 for a household. Social Membership costs $300 annually for individuals and $600 for a household. Memberships are for one year.
 
What is a Social Membership?
Social members, who pay half the fee of Members, receive all the benefits offered by Lamorinda Village, except volunteer services. Managing volunteers is the most time-consuming service provided by a Village, and so that's why the half-price membership excludes volunteer support. Social members may not need volunteer services until they are older or their circumstances change. 

However, since the Village is a one-stop concierge service, the Village office could refer a social member to make transportation arrangements on their own with other free or "for a fee" transportation providers, taxis, car services, or other non-emergency ambulance services with whom we may have arranged a discount for all our members.
