bullet

bullet

Receive Newsletters, Invitations and other communications about the Park

Membership dues help offset the cost of maintaining the park facilities.

Additionally, when seeking funding for park improvements from foundations and corporate sources it is usually very desirable to show a membership base of local citizens who are supportive of the GMRPA.  A larger membership base will indicate a greater local involvement and support for the goals of the Park Association.  Foundations and corporate sources providing funding grants usually look at the local level of support as part of their evaluation criteria in deciding whether or not to approve the request.  One of these forms of local support is the membership base of the organization submitting a request for funding.  Naturally, larger membership translates into greater local support.
