Membership

Become a Sustaining Member and show your City Fruit love!

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 $7 or more, or a recurring annual contribution of $85 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].
