The Donor Funds have been created to support colleagues who would like to participate in the World Association but who are not able to afford the membership dues.
We know of many colleagues from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe and other disadvantaged communities who would like to become members and who want to contribute to enrich our world community but who lack the economic resources to join.
The Donor Fund for Individuals offers membership for two years. The membership includes a subscription to the journal, Person-centered and Experiential Psychotherapies (PCEP) and all other benefits of membership: Newsletter, reduction on the conference fee at the PCE conference, the right to be a candidate for the board and the right to vote in the Board election and the General Assembly of the WAPCEPC.
The Donor Fund for Organizations pays 50% towards the already discounted organizational membership fee for organizations based in countries with economies categorised as "Low income", "Lower middle income" and "Upper middle income" by the World Bank. This support is available for two years.
The PCE Conference Bursary fund exists to provide financial assistance to WAPCEPC members from disadvantaged communities around the world who wish to attend the International PCE Conference. Funding is typically available to cover 50% of the basic conference registration fee only, and is not available for travel or accommodation costs.

What you get
The most important aspect of membership is its political impact in advocating globally for person-centered and experiential practice, research, and development. Membership includes a subscription to the journal ‘Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies' (PCEP), which is indexed by PsycINFO. There are 4 issues per year. The mission of the Journal is to encourage and disseminate, worldwide, new work on Person-Centered and Experiential Therapies, including philosophy, theory, practice, training and research. The journal will not give preference to any parts of the world, nor to any philosophical or theoretical emphases within the approach. Members will also receive a regular Newsletter with information about current developments in the Association and news of conferences and publications. You will be entitled to a reduction on the PCE Conference fees and you have a vote in the General Assembly of the Association and in the Board election.
Validity of membership
The membership is valid for the current year, and has to be renewed each year by the member. It is valid as soon as the payment has been received, and cannot be refunded.

The donor fund offers a free membership to colleagues in countries in world bank categories B C & D for a period of 1-3 years.
The World Association is seeking to develop the donor fund which provides subsidised association membership for person-centered workers in countries in world bank categories B, C & D. Are you willing to become a membership sponsor by contributing to the fund?
We welcome contributions from individual members and organizational members to help us make the WAPCEPC more accessible to colleagues who do not have the economic resources to join the Association.
The Association already offers membership at a reduced rate for members in countries of World Bank Categories B, C and D, but we are unable to do more than that since we are working with a very small annual budget. We know of many colleagues from Africa, Asia, Latin America and from Eastern Europe who would like to become members and who want to contribute to enrich our world community, but who lack the economic resources to join, even with the reduced membership dues.
The donor fund offers a free membership to colleagues from these parts of the world, for a period of 2 years.
