Examples of membership applications are the applications to recruit new members used by the Knights of Columbus and the Nature Conservancy. Some membership applications require the submission of membership fees or donations.
The Knights of Columbus have an online application available on their official website. Applicants provide their name, gender, address and designate whether they are Catholic or connected to the military. Upon receiving a completed application, an area Knight contacts a particular applicant to conduct an interview.
The Nature Conservancy's membership application is similar but requires a donation upon submitting the application. Applicants choose how much they want to donate to the organization.
