Monthly Membership Giving: MOFGA Perennial Friends

Becoming a MOFGA Perennial Friend monthly donor is a special way to support our work creating a healthy and fair food system for all of us. Both our members and MOFGA reap the benefits of monthly giving: 

  • Going green. Monthly giving helps use resources efficiently with fewer mail communications.
  • Seamless renewals. Your monthly contribution is ongoing until you choose to end it, so there’s no need to renew each year.
  • Committed support. Perennial Friends’ recurring contributions provide MOFGA reliable monthly income to sustain our year-round education, training and advocacy programs.

Membership FAQ

We’re grateful for your support throughout the year! July 1 marks the beginning of our membership year for voting purposes. We encourage you to make a membership donation at this time to maximize your membership benefits. We also appreciate your additional giving above and beyond your membership donation.

Any membership at the $20+ level will receive our quarterly newspaper. Membership subscriptions will be valid for five issues (fall Fair, winter, spring, summer, fall Fair), beginning with the fall Fair issue and concluding with the following year’s fall Fair issue.

  • If your membership lapses, the Fair issue will be your last issue. For example, if your membership lapses in July 2023, you will receive your final fall Fair issue and then you will not receive the winter 2023-2024 issue.
  • If you become a member mid-year, you will receive the remaining issues in the five-issue cycle. For example, if you become a member in January 2024, you will receive the spring 2024 issue, the summer 2024 issue, and Fair 2024 edition with your membership.

If you do not wish to receive The MOF&G as part of your membership, please let us know here.

We restructured our membership levels and membership calendar in July 2021. Now, any donation of $5 or more per year gives you membership access, making membership more accessible to our community at any price point.

Membership benefits are now based on giving level. You can choose the giving level that’s right for you instead of choosing your level based on household structure.

All memberships now renew each year on July 1. This helps us use our resources more efficiently and streamline Common Ground Country Fair entrance for members.

Please call 207-568-6007 or email [email protected] with any questions or feedback about your membership!
