A Supporter membership allows meteorite enthusiasts, scientists, researchers, educators, independent dealers and anyone aligned with the GMA’s mission to financially support the organization with no formal obligations to the GMA (only need adhere to Website Terms of Service). This membership enables some participation in the private GMA social network (forums, groups).

Note that any Supporter (e.g., researcher, scientist) that wishes to contribute content, may at the discretion of the Membership Committee be granted additional benefits and access to enable their contributions.

For those unable to receive the required number of recommendations to become a Collector or Business member, the Supporter membership also helps establish relationships with other reputable Collector and Business members who may at a later time provide a recommendation.


Supporter member dues are normally $20/year, but reduced for 2021 to $10. The membership renewal period begins Nov. 15 of each year and the membership expires on Dec. 31.
