How do I add a family member to my Household?
When you add household members, you can either invite existing Basic members or you can create a new contact.
If you choose an existing Basic member, that means you are inviting someone who already has a password to their own cascade account. This person will be emailed an invitation to join your household. If they choose to do so, you can sign in to YOUR account to register them for rides AND they can register THEMSELVES for rides, using your member benefits, by signing in to their own account.
If you create a new contact, that person has not yet signed up for a free Basic membership and does not have a cascade.org account with a personal password yet. You will need to register them for any Cascade events.
Are Cascade memberships tax-deductible or refundable?
This new standard recognizes that the fair market value of the benefits that come with a purchase may not exceed the cost of the product for not-for-profit entities. Therefore the Premium memberships are not eligible for tax deductibility.
Champion $1,000 memberships are tax-deductible, less the fair market value of a Premium family membership of $70.
Unless paid in error membership dues are not eligible for refunds as described in Cascade's refund policies.
