Membership changes: New ‘Love Your Lungs’ Club to connect supporters

Next year, Lung Foundation Australia will launch our ‘Love Your Lungs’ Club, a new community which will replace Membership changesour existing Supporter Membership program. The new club will cost $30 per year and will offer access to a variety of benefits for supporters including discounted entry to Patient Seminars, discounts on patient resources (where a cost applies), advance notice of Lung Foundation Australia special offers/events/campaigns and programs and access to our online supporter discount program which has great deals on travel, restaurants, shopping and other items.
One of the big changes that will be introduced at the same time is in how LungNet News will be distributed. Like all other charities we have been faced with the increasing costs of printing and distribution, as well as continued price rises from Australia Post. It has become increasingly expensive to cover the cost of mailing a hard copy of the newsletter. This means that from May next year, the physical copy of LungNet News will only be mailed to members of the ‘Love Your Lungs’ Club who elect to receive it in this way.

LungNet News is a valued resource and placing a small price on it ensures we can most effectively use the funds generously contributed to us while continuing LungNet News’ proud history. That’s why we are ensuring people can still read LungNet News if they are unable to become a member of the ‘Love Your Lungs’ Club.

You will still be able to receive an electronic copy sent free of charge directly to your email inbox four times per year. You will also be able to download or print copies directly from our website. If you don’t have access to a computer or an email address, you can obtain a copy of LungNet News by asking a family member or friend to print it for you, or you could make use of the facilities at your local library.

If you would like to sign up now, or would like further information about the changes please phone our Information and Support Centre on 1800 654 301, email enquiries@lungfoundation.com.au, or visit http://lungfoundation.com.au/supporter-membership/.
