My $0.02 
Separate the issues:
Have a discussion about the Charter Member process that does
not have anything to do with "fees", and then come to a
resolution (at least for this year).
Have a separate discussion about "fees" and types of
memberships (e.g. different thread(s), perhaps at a
different time frame than (A) to avoid muddying the waters).
Have a separate discussion about "fundraising", and ways
to accomplish that (some of which have already been
brought up within the current discussions).
With the elimination of the Canadian penny
and the rounding process, that $0.02 is worth
zero dollars, so take it for what's it's worth ;-)
