Ein nod yw tyfu’r sefydliad drwy wahodd pawb ym Mhontypridd i ymuno fel aelodau sy’n talu, gan gynhyrchu incwm y gellir ei roi tuag at brynu tir yn y dyfodol.   

2023 oedd ein blwyddyn lawn gyntaf a gwnaethom recriwtio 30 aelod yn talu rhwng £3-10 y mis gan gynhyrchu dros £2000 mewn incwm. Bob blwyddyn wedi hynny anelwn at ddyblu ein haelodaeth.

Rydym yn dechrau fel cymdeithas gymunedol a byddwn yn gweithio tuag at sefydlu Cymdeithas Budd Cymunedol ac Ymddiriedolaeth Tir Cymunedol fel yr amlinellir yng Nghynllun Busnes Tir Pontypridd.
