Register to Gain Access to Bart’s Membership Blog
The money received for your membership all goes to charities dealing with hunger and homelessness – every dime. None of it is used for marketing or technology support. So too do all donations. Please note that providing a donation does not automatically confer membership in the blog (you still need to sign up and pay a membership fee; the same is true of renewals.)
Please Take Time to Read This! A few users have contacted Bart about not receiving a password after payment. Please be assured, the membership system does automatically generate and transmit a password instantly. In a couple cases, a misspelled email has been the cause of delivery error. More commonly, the email containing the missing password has been delivered to the users “Junk Folder”; sometimes a user has a white list filter active to block spam, and have not looked for the email in their spam queue. Another problem intermittently encountered is access delay. Sometimes there is a 15 to 30 minute delay before PayPal transmits the details for blog access, affecting both renewals and new account payments. The membership system developers are working in conjunction with PayPal to remedy the error, but progress has been unfruitful to date.
Please Read if you choose not to use PayPal! PayPal Standard has changed their policies and now allows Credit Card payments without a PayPal account (See Here). Exception are some VISA debit cards. However, if you absolutely refuse to process a transaction through PayPal, you have the option of sending a check by snail mail, for $34.95 to the foundation office for one year access. (The additional $10 surcharge, in addition to the annual $24.95 fee, is because Bart needs to walk checks individually over to the bank.) Please mail your check to:
Bart Ehrman Foundation, 152 Pinecrest Rd. Durham, NC 27705-5813
