Cost of Membership
Unlike other Templar-like organizations that charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars to join, our
membership fees are very minimal.
There is an initial donation required of $100.00. This covers all of your expenses as you progress through
the ranks from Companion At Arms up to and including your Investiture into Knighthood. That includes
your training in our on line Templar Academy and the neck cross that you will receive at Investiture.
An annual donation of $50.00 is also due on June 1st of each year.
NOTE: Upon receipt of your application, a formal background check will take place.
If approved, vetting will begin with your Prior to determine ultimate fit in our Order.
This process can take up to 3 weeks.
