The Illuminati has no need for donations of any kind and will never demand payment for membership. Anyone who solicits money for membership in the Illuminati should be reported to us.
Costs from our partners — for example, fees involved in manufacturing the Talisman, printing the Testament, or security for attendees of Illuminios — are the sole responsibility of those who request them. The Illuminati is not a charity and does not subsidize any person’s costs to improve their lives. The production of any item bearing our name is handled solely by our partners and consultants.

For the sake of clarity, citizens are reminded that there is no harm to a person’s standing with the Illuminati if they do not study the Testament or display their loyalty in public. These decisions are solely their own. There are no costs, fees, or purchases required for loyalty to the Illuminati.
Never pay resellers who demand high prices for anything related to our organization. Such profit-seeking is unauthorized and likely counterfeit. Membership cannot be sold, traded, or transferred under any circumstances.
These policies are in place for the protection of our citizens. When questioning the legitimacy of anyone claiming to represent our organization, the true Illuminati can be set apart easily: money means nothing to those who print it.
