I agree, sound financial footing is essential, and that seems to be dependent on the number of members, as bequests (so far as I know) are few and far between.
We continue to be members because we think it is good for the community. We are not the kind of people who only support the things in the community that they actually use. We supported the needs of our community in the US for libraries, schools and senior center; we feel the same here. So, whether we use all its services or not, we support having those services and having a place for the gringo community to hear speakers, enjoy a park-like setting where we can meet associates, etc.
With fewer newcomers arriving this year due to worldwide economic problems, fewer people will be joining and using LCS in the near future. This may be a bigger problem than the disgruntled current and ex-members. That may put more of a burden on finances.
