Please complete the form below to become a member of The MBA or you can renew your membership here.

  • The MBA also runs the MBA Fellows Programme. For further information, click here.

  • Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate. Gift Aid is reclaimed by the charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year.

    I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I want to Gift Aid my membership fee and any other donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to the Marine Biological Association.

    Please notify the MBA if you: want to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address, no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains. If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
