President’s Society

President's Society

President’s Society members provide critical support for AMC’s conservation, environmental education, and recreation programs.

Annual contributions from President Society members make AMC programs possible. To become a member, participants must make an unrestricted annual contribution of $1,000 or more. Your gift helps fund everything from trail building and maintenance, environmental education and leadership training, to scientific research and conservation initiatives. Your generosity also allows AMC to offer outdoor adventures, activities, and educational programs for every season, every interest.

In addition to the impact of their gift, President’s Society membership also comes with great benefits that do not affect the tax deductibility of that gift. Member levels and benefits are based on donation amounts and include an AMC family-level membership, subscription to the Appalachia Journal, invitations to outdoor adventures and events, a complimentary membership to give to a friend, and recognition in AMC’s Annual Report.

President’s Society members share a passion for outdoor pursuits, environmental stewardship, and the satisfaction of knowing they play a key role in furthering AMC’s mission. In addition to the impact of their gift, President’s Society membership also comes with great benefits that do not affect the tax deductibility of that gift.
