Membership Rate SheetRKS is a not-for-profit organization whose primary goal is to educate and strengthen the Rochester Kink community. To ensure future financial stability, a majority of our costs are covered by the income from membership fees. Income over and above operating costs is be used to establish savings and emergency funds for the group as well as provide for ongoing improvements to our facilities, including the dungeon space, equipment, furniture, appliances, etc.
Dues may be paid via cash, check, or credit card. RKS also has a "Dungeon Dollars" plan for those who volunteer regularly (DM shifts, cleaning and work crew, etc.). Dungeon Dollar credits earned may be applied to dues, guest fees, workshop fees, etc.
