Join the President’s Society
The President’s Society is a group of philanthropic members who annually give an unrestricted gift of $1,000 or more. Members provide critical support for AMC’s conservation, environmental education, and recreation programs.
Your Gift’s Impact
Annual financial contributions from President’s Society members make AMC programs possible, in particular:
Managing and stewarding trails throughout the Appalachian Region.
Supporting scientific research; conservation advocacy; and land and river protection in the Northern Forest, including Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness, and the Mid-Atlantic Highlands.
Getting 500,000 kids outdoors through environmental education programs and outdoor activities.
Leadership training and support for 25,000 volunteers who advance AMC’s mission and introduce thousands of people to the outdoors.
Providing hospitality to 145,000 overnight guests each year in our lodges, huts, shelters, and camps.

There is more than one way to join
Make a gift or a pledge today! Pledges must be fulfilled by December 31, 2019.
Monthly gifts of $85 or more qualify for membership in the President’s Society and can be charged to your credit card each month.
Many corporations will match your gift dollar for dollar. Your gift, with a corporate match totaling $1,000 or more, qualifies you for membership in the President’s Society.
