Become a member and show your City Fruit love!
City Fruit has always been community-driven and focused, and a large part of our work has been possible only because of invested community members like you! Our membership program recognizes that our members love fruit, community, and the opportunity to engage in special promotions across the city. Your membership helps ensure that we can continue to expand our harvest work so that everyone in our city shares in the value of fruit.
City Fruit’s membership program is designed to include EVERYONE – whether you have a fruit tree, like to volunteer and help care for the fruit trees, or just enjoy celebrating the neighborhood harvest with a fresh apple. You are all part of our fruit community! Membership benefits are extended to all recurring donors who commit to a monthly contribution of $5 or more, or a recurring annual contribution of $60 or more. This provides City Fruit reliable funding to plan our community events and educational programs!
Please note: All City Fruit Membership donations are tax-deductible and qualify for company matches! Members will receive a gift summary receipt in January each year. If you’d like a donation receipt earlier in the year to submit for a company match, please email [email protected].
In addition to supporting the sustainability of our programs, as a City Fruit Member, you receive the following benefits! To access benefits related to City Fruit services and programs, please contact our Development Manager, Jordyn Egbert at [email protected].
