Why Become a Member?
All of our plans for the future and accomplishments of the past could not and will not be completed without the involvement and support from our many partners. Paid memberships and donations of time and materials all contribute to the successful completion of our goals. Your contribution not only provides some of the direct fiscal support necessary for our organization to continue but it provides matching funds for some of our grant funded projects.
Some of our members are employees of companies that match memberships. These companies are making a commitment to the community and supporting their employee’s volunteerism. Check with your employer to determine if they have a matching gift program.
We also appreciate hearing from members if they are aware of corporate giving programs. Usually these companies prefer to support organizations that their employees support.
How to Join
It’s easy, just use the form to the left! Pick the membership level you want. You have the option of picking a one-time, monthly, or annual membership. One-time means you pay for the year, and will have to come back to this page next year and redo the process to renew. Monthly means you get a small amount of the total membership amount taken out of your account each month. Annual is like a one-time payment that auto renews each year, meaning you never have to worry about renewing your membership. You can change your donation preferences at any time. However, if you downgrade or cancel your monthly membership amount, you might not be eligible for all the benefits of that level.
