All approved Thrive Gives membership accounts do not have an expiration date. Once you are approved, you will have continued access to Thrive Market! If you find yourself able to afford the yearly membership cost in the future, you can always switch over to a paid membership, which pays for a Thrive Gives membership to someone else in need. Passing on the perks!
