Membership in the Friends can be attained for as little as $15 per year. All memberships are on a 12 month basis from the month of joining. Life membership is available for a membership payment of $500 or more. The Friends are a 501(c)(3) entity and all memberships are completely tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Members receive the Friends newsletter, The Fringed Gentian™, published three times per year and rights to participate in the annual meeting held in May. The Fringed Gentian™ is available by post or e-mail - e-mail only to non-U.S. addresses.
