Membership


Support Sustainable Development in Appalachian Ohio: Join Rural Action!

Our members are the heartbeat of our organization. By bringing new ideas, leading committees, and donating their time and resources, members play an active role in promoting Rural Action’s mission. The first $20 of your donation is applied towards membership dues; above and beyond this amount will be considered a tax-deductible gift to the organization. Memberships are good for one year. Your support makes a difference!


Membership at any level provides you with Basic Membership Benefits:
  • Copies of the Rural Report and Annual Report

  • Reduced prices on select merchandise
  • Annual Meeting Voting Privileges

Sustaining Memberships

Sustaining memberships are an easy and efficient way for you to support Rural Action through monthly secure payments. Sustaining memberships are available at the Encourage and Inspire Levels and payments of either $5 or $10 are made automatically every month. Sustaining members know that they are making a difference and supporting the programs they care about each and every month until they tell us they want to stop. Sustaining members also receive a Rural Action organic cotton tote bag which they can use to help promote Rural Action whenever they go to the Farmers Market, grocery store, library, or on other errands.
To sign up for a sustaining membership, please email membership@ruralaction.org
