Benefits + Commitment

Groundbreakers commit to give $100 per month for 3+ years.

Benefits include:

  • Give quietly, or get active – your choice. Members are invited to an annual party, plus one Members-only volunteer project. Rather Netflix at home with the kids? Don’t waste any guilt – your financial support is commitment enough.
  • Show your support by wearing the Groundbreakers Patagonia rain jacket, our gift when you join.
  • The first 100 Founding Groundbreakers will be recognized through an installation at the APF office, donated by renowned local artists from Stanley Studio.
