How is it a "charity" ?

http://www.sog.org.uk/membership/about.shtml

(quoting)
The Society is a registered charity (No. 233701) and a company limited
by guarantee (No.115703)

Not all associations are charities.

It is a company, not an association. The name can be misleading i.e.
it is not like a typical genealogical society and their homepage
doesn't compare to major US societies for instances. Priority is
given to things for sale.

My former ISP called "members" its clients, so members doesn't mean
there is a true association, and "society of" neither.
