Life Membership

Home » Join a Garden Club » Life Membership

Life Memberships are given by clubs to honor members who have given outstanding service to their club, district or state organization. Life memberships may also be purchased by individual club members for themselves or by friends and family for a club member.

The cost of a State Life membership is $100.00 plus $5.00 for a pin if desired. All fees are invested in the Life Membership Fund where the annual earned interest of this money supports the MGC, Inc. Scholarship Program available in most of the State’s universities.

Once an application and check are received, a packet will be prepared which consists of: a letter outlining accomplishments of the member; a certificate; a membership card; a ribbon and a pin if purchased. This packet is sent to the person who fills out the request. The requestor should make arrangements with either the district director or the club to have it presented to the member.

Please consider honoring members with a Life Membership. All Life Members will continue to receive the MGC Inc. newsletter whether they continue as members of a club or not.
