You will be transferred to our secure payment processor, which is PayPal, where you may chose your method of payment - credit/debit card or PayPal. You do not need to be a member of PayPal to do this, nor will PayPal retain any of your information. You must have an email address to use this process. When you have made payment PayPal will send you and us a receipt. Except for the 3-year category, all memberships are for one year (except Permanent Supporter).
Determine what support level you prefer to give and click on the "Gift" button. You can then enter any amount you wish to donate - either one of our suggested levels or any other amount greater than $15. It may take several seconds for the PayPal site to load.
Important #2: After entering the dollar amount of your gift the next screen has a line that asks you to write a note - do so - please give us who the gift is for - name and address. [see illustration] If you forget to do that just email us with the gift information. When the gift membership expires we will send the gift membership renewal to you unless you tell us otherwise.
Consider a "3-year" gift - this will keep information from us flowing to the new person and we will send you in thanks a set of our Garden Note Cards
You can cancel the entire process at the bottom of the PayPal Checkout Page.

An acknowledgment of the gift will be sent to you. The recipient of a gift will receive a letter of welcome from the Friends. Renewal support forms will be mailed to that person when it's time for them to renew thier support.
