Dues are separate and distinct from gifts to the Annual Stewardship Appeal. Dues are part of the requirements of membership in the Order of Malta and cover the day-to-day costs of operating the Association and the annual dues owed to Rome. Gifts to the Annual Stewardship Appeal, however, are voluntary and go in full to the direct service of the poor and the sick in this country and around the world.
Dues, as of 2020, are $1,650 for each member. Gifts to the Annual Stewardship Appeal range from $25 to $25,000—reflective of the individual capability and generosity of the Knights and Dames.
