About MOFGA Membership

Thank you to all of our members for helping to sustain MOFGA’s year-round work. Any donation of $5 or more gives you access to the benefits of membership, which are outlined below. Choose the giving level that’s right for you.

Membership Calendar

Our membership year runs July 1 – June 30 annually, so all memberships renew on July 1 each year. We adopted this membership calendar on July 1, 2021, which helps us use our resources efficiently and streamline Common Ground Country Fair entrance for members.

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.

Learn More About Our Membership Calendar and Benefits

July 1, 2022 marks the first renewal date for our new membership schedule. On July 1, 2021, we adopted a new membership calendar and changed our membership levels and benefits. MOFGA membership is now structured so that:

  • Any donation of $5 or more per year gives you membership access! Membership is more accessible to our community at any price point.
  • Membership benefits are based on giving level. You can now choose the giving level that’s right for you instead of choosing your level based on household structure.
  • All memberships will renew each year on July 1. This will help us use our resources more efficiently and streamline Common Ground Country Fair entrance for members.

Membership FAQ

We will send instructions to receive any complimentary ticket(s) you receive with your membership on August 1, 2022, when Fair tickets become available.

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 2022, you will receive your final fall Fair issue and then you will not receive the winter 2022-2023 issue.
  • If you become a member mid-year, you will receive the remaining issues in the five-issue cycle when you join. For example, if you become a member in January 2023, you will receive the spring 2023 issue, the summer 2023 issue, and Fair 2023 edition with your membership.
