Sustaining Membership

Another exciting option for membership renewal is our Sustaining Membership plan. Membership at the Sustaining level means that you pay for your annual membership in monthly installments, but can take advantage of the  benefits throughout the year.  It allows you to:
  • roll over your membership from year-to-year without renewal notices.
  • have an uninterrupted membership…we’ll automatically process your renewal at the same time next year.
  • use your membership discounts at any time during the year.
Sustaining Membership is an easy and efficient way for you to support the Trees Forever programs you love through secure, automatic monthly payments from your credit card, debit card, or bank account. We'll deduct your designated contribution of $5 or more from your account until you let us know to stop or change it.  It’s that easy, and what better way to contribute to environmental conservation and the greening of our world?  Less paper, fewer stamps, and lower administrative costs means more of your contribution goes toward the tree planting, education, and advocacy activities you value. 

To become a sustaining member, just check the box on the donation page to "make my donation a recurring payment".
