You will be transferred to our secure payment processor, which is PayPal, where you may chose your method of payment. You do not need to be a member of PayPal to do this, nor will PayPal retain any of your information. When you have made payment you will be returned to The Friends web site. Note: This process refers to your membership as an "order" and your address as "ship to".
IMPORTANT: FIRST: Select the membership level from the drop-down box at right. THEN click on the "Gift" button to start the new membership. You will be given the option to pay via credit card, debit card, bank account or PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to do this. It may take several seconds for the PayPal site to load.
Important note: After entering your payment information on PayPal and before clicking the "Pay" button, you will see an information line that reads "Name and Address for Gift Membership" with an "add" button next to it. Click the add button to type in the name and address of the gift recipent. This line is directly beneath your contact information and just above the "pay" button, but is in the same size type as the other text and you could miss it. If you do, just email us with the gift information. You must have an email address to use this process.

An acknowledgment of the gift membership will be sent to you. The recipient of a gift membership will receive a letter of welcome from the Friends. Renewal membership forms will be mailed to that person when their annual membership expires.)
