If you live near the Pond, or if you just visit to hike its shores, fish its waters, or cross-country ski its wintry ice cover, you can become a Corporation member. Annual dues are $25 per year individual/$40 per year family/$100 per year sustaining. Provide us your e-mail address, and you'll receive periodic updates on activities of the Corporation and developments affecting Foster's Pond. (We don't share our e-mail list with anyone else.) This is a membership-driven organization, and all members are welcome to attend and participate in meetings of the Corporation.
Membership dues only go so far. We need additional support to fight invasive weeds, maintain the historic dam, and safeguard the Pond's fragile ecosystem. We have no paid staff - so every dollar you give goes directly into safeguarding Foster's Pond.
We recommend an annual contribution of $250, but any amount - large or small - is a big help.

Give online. We have partnered with a third-party site, Network for Good, itself a tax-exempt organization which provides small charitable groups like ours with the ability to raise funds via the Internet. Network for Good was founded by Time Warner Foundation, AOL, and other nationally known technology companies, and is funded by them and major foundations. When you click on the button below, you'll be transferred to our page on the Network for Good site, where you will be able to make your contribution. You will be asked to "register"; this is a reputable site, and your information will not be shared. Please note: Your credit card statement will show your contribution going to Network for Good (not the Foster's Pond Corporation). Don't worry! Your contribution comes to us, and it is fully tax deductible! You will automatically receive an e-mail response, which you can keep for tax purposes as your receipt for your tax-deductible contribution. Please remember to check the box allowing Network for Good to pass on your e-mail address to us, so we can keep you up-to-date on developments affecting Foster's Pond.
