The Tolkien Society is a voluntary organisation registered as a Charity in England. The general costs of running the Society, including publishing Amon Hen and Mallorn, are met from membership subscriptions. However funding of other activities depends on donations. In the past such activities have included assisting with the conservation of books by Tolkien in the British Library and providing copies of The Hobbit for schools in Africa.
