Sustaining Friends of Volcan Mountain

The Sustaining Friends of Volcan Mountain is a group of ardent supporters and champions of the mission of the Volcan Mountain Foundation (VMF) that was initiated in 2012.  Members help the VMF Board of Directors shape the vision and goals, and their annual gifts provide consistent support to sustain the operations of the Foundation.

Volcan Mountain Foundation
The mission of the Volcan Mountain Foundation is to strive with intention to conserve and acquire land and practice respectful stewardship through education, public outreach, and resource management to preserve the Volcan Mountain range in its natural state for future generations.

With over 17,000 acres added for preservation since 1988, VMF has worked to protect the watershed and incredibly biodiverse wildlife and wildlands of the Volcan Mountain range, while increasing nature education, public outreach and advocacy for our natural resources.

Sustaining Friends Annual Events
At the planning gathering for the Sustaining Friends group in the fall of 2012, long-time supporters of the organization came together to share their vision of how a supporting friends group might look….what it might offer…and how supporters might be involved.  There was a consensus that the group should gather twice annually.

• The Spring Exploration Day is an opportunity for Sustaining Friends to discover hidden gems on and around the Volcan Mountain range and learn about the range up close.

• The Fall Visioning Day is an opportunity for Sustaining Friends to share and discuss progress, accomplishments, future projects and goals.

Sustaining Friends Benefits Card
The Benefits Card program is one way we honor Sustaining Friends' ongoing support of VMF.

Present your personalized Sustaining Friends Benefits Card to a growing list of area VMF Business Partners.  Each partner has designed a discount or other offer designed exclusively for Sustaining Friends of Volcan Mountain.  You’ll find a variety of restaurants, merchants, accommodations and services represented on the list found here.

• support and advise the VMF Board of Directors and attend Sustaining Friends annual events as you are able

VMF features a handful of special giving opportunities during the year, like at the Dinner Dance, or for special projects, and occasionally a matching challenge or capital campaign.
