SEEDS Core Value of Access

SEEDS uses a sliding scale model in alignment with our core value of access. The below descriptions can help you decide which tier is right for you. We honor and recognize that we come from different backgrounds and experiences, as it relates to disability status, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, and so many more of our multitudes of identities. Joining at the highest possible membership tier supports those at the other end of the sliding scale.

Selecting a Membership Tier

SEEDS designs our services to reduce barriers to participation. To honor this core value of access, we encourage members to consider the following impacts of systemic advantages and disadvantages when registering:


  • Educational earning power (advanced graduate degree)

  • Salary/annual income that far exceeds necessities and makes wealth accumulation possible

  • Investments and savings (emergency "rainy day" savings, investments, retirement funds, etc.)

  • Access to generational familial wealth (inheritance, trust funds, property, education paid for by family, etc.)

  • Lack of debt (student loans, personal credit card debt, personal loans, car loans, medical debt, etc.)

  • Property ownership (car, boat, home, vacation home, landlord, etc.

  • Excess funds for entertainment (restaurants, travel, shopping for personal expenses, etc.)

  • Financially responsible for only yourself without dependents or others reliant on your income

  • Access to employer health insurance/benefits or to pay for healthcare on the private market

  • Access to paid time off (PTO), sick time, or vacation time
