Learn About Memberships

As a living endowment to cancer research and education, members of the Royal Dames pledge $2,500 for life membership, payable over a period of 10 years. Each member commits to an endowment of $2,500 with payments of $250 per year over a ten-year period.

Members also commit to participating in annual fundraising activities, specifically attending the Annual Tiara Ball. Pledges make up a large portion of our income. In addition, we have fundraisers at which community participation is warmly welcomed and very much needed.

Why You Should Join The Mission

The Ocala Royal Dames is made up of over 240 vital, creative women. These carefully selected philanthropists reflect a broad spectrum of talents and leadership. Essentially, they are creative, farsighted, oriented to the betterment of the community and dedicated to the organization’s mission.

The organization is entirely voluntary, and no monies are utilized for staff or office space. Our members are dedicated to making a difference in our community and in fighting this dreaded disease. We will not rest until cancer has been vanquished.
