If you are experiencing financial hardship that would prevent you from joining TCA at our Regular member rate, we invite you to join at an open sliding-scale rate starting at $10. Simply choose "Pay As You Can" when prompted to select your Membership Level below and enter a rate of your choice starting at $10.

Pay it Forward:
TCA relies on its members' support to sustain our organization and continue working on behalf of the taiko community.
