CFI Membership

Tuition and fees for children’s programs cover only 65% to 75% of their operating costs. As members you provide critical underwriting for CFI’s school and youth environmental education programs, internships for young professionals and help to build our capacity. Memberships also help CFI bridge the gap, keep the doors open, and the work-lights burning throughout our program year. You receive discounts on our programs for kids, adults and families, advance notice of trips, and invitations to member-only events.

You can join at any time, and depending on when you join, your membership is good for a year and will expire at the end of May each year. We come to our membership just twice a year for support through a summer campaign and our winter Stewardship Fund drive. Your gift is tax-deductible according to IRS guidelines. We appreciate whatever you can offer, when you are able.
