Members live well beyond the the Blue Ridge while their annual donations and membership contributions are hard at work supporting the work of FRIENDS volunteers.
Your tax-deductible membership is all that’s required for you to help, too. We have several membership options that start as little as $40 annually or $5 monthly.
Members receive discounts and other benefits at a number of different Blue Ridge businesses.
We are updating our member benefits! Below is a link to a current list of offerings. New additions are happening often so come back again soon.
If you’ve misplaced your membership card, please call us at 800-228-7275 and we’ll be happy to get you a replacement.
