Membership FAQ's

What is a premium member?

A Premium member is a paid subscriber who has joined ACT for America by either one of our current membership payment options or by previously donating to us on a monthly basis.

If you have been donating on a recurring basis of at least $5 a month, then you are considered a Premium Member.

If I have been donating in the past (Previous to June 2016), am I considered a premium member and thus have access to the secured members only portal?

If you have been giving on a monthly basis, then you are indeed a premium member, but you will still need to create your account on our website to have access.

What do you receive by joining us as a Premium (Paid) Member?

Visit our membership benefits page for more information.

How do I join as a Premium Member?

Do you offer recurring billing?

Absolutely. Your credit card will automatically be billed each month beginning on the date you join and each month thereafter until you cancel. You will be billed the amount you selected when you joined. This can be increased or decreased by emailing us at membership@actforamerica.org.

Where do I go once I have joined as a premium member?

You should receive an automatic receipt with account activation instructions. If you have not received, please check your spam folder or reach out to us at membership@actforamerica.org.

Where does the money from my membership go towards?

Your hard-earned money goes directly towards educating elected officials about the most critical threats facing our nation, and helping to pass legislation that will result in making America a safer place to call home.

Thanks to you, ACT for America has helped pass 79 bills in 32 states, as well as significant federal legislation to secure our nation.

ACT for America is mobilizing the nation through our grassroots chapter network, to empower citizens desiring to affect real change in their own communities. We are indisputably, the largest, most influential National Security grassroots advocacy organization in America.

This work would not have been possible without an elite professional staff, with extensive backgrounds in their specific fields. It requires lobbyists, publicists, field coordinators. and management. In practice, our organization also relies on your support to cover the technological, travel, and program costs, keeping our machine running full steam ahead.

We thank you immeasurably for your patriotic generosity. Such altruism is neither underappreciated, nor underutilized.
