Membership details: how to join and make equity payments

Join via Postal Mail:  Membership purchases can be made at our meetings/events or by sending a check or money order of $50-$500 (made out to Dill Pickle Food Co-op) to:
Attn: Membership
Dill Pickle Food Co-op
3039 W. Fullerton
Chicago, IL 60647

Join via Online Payment: 
Membership can also be purchased with a secure online payment through PayPal.  The PayPal processing fee is included in each of the 6 payment options listed in the box below.  If you are already a member and would like to make a payment towards your full $250 membership, you may do that here as well. Simply choose the amount that you would like to add to your investment in the box below (the amounts are multiples of $50 + the PayPal processing fee).  If you are unsure of how much you have already invested, please contact our Membership Coordinator, Kevin Monahan at

Opening the store requires a large amount of initial capital (about $130,000, possibly more), we encourage you to invest as much of the full $250 member equity as you can now (or the $500 maximum investment if you are feeling particularly impatient for Chicago's only cooperative grocery store to open!).  And remember, the fewer installments, the fewer processing fees you'll have to pay!  Thank you for being an essential part of this exciting project!

Individual Payment Options:
Were you referred by anyone?

Online Subscriptions:  We also have a number of options for membership payment subscriptions. This is a great way to become a fully vested member if you are unable to purchase the full $250 equity all at once. You many unsubscribe at any time (scroll down to the bottom of the subscription section).

5-month subscription for full membership: 
You will be automatically billed for $50 (plus the $1.81 PayPal processing fee) per month for 5 months.

10-month subscription for full membership:  You will be automatically billed for $25 (plus the $1.03 PayPal processing fee) per month for 10 months.

Low-income minimum membership subscription:  Since we realize that parting with $50 at once might be a tall order for folks with limited means, we are also offering a 5-month subscription for the minimum annual membership payment ($10.59/month - includes PayPal processing fee - for 5 months).  However, we ask that you use this option only if you cannot afford to pay $50 or more up front.  The Co-op urgently needs to raise membership funds in order to meet our goal of opening by early Fall, so we cannot encourage you enough to invest as much of the full $250 membership as you can as soon as you can. Thank you!
