Friends of Acadia has over 3,500 members from all over the world. We rely on tax-deductible gifts from our members to fund important ongoing projects and new initiatives to preserve and protect Acadia National Park and the communities that surround it on Mount Desert Island.
Membership funds make the following accomplishments possible:
- Finance the propane-powered Island Explorer bus system and develop the Acadia Gateway Center, the planned off-island transportation hub
- Organize thousands of volunteers who work more than 10,000 hours in the park and surrounding communities each summer
- Fund the Acadia Youth Conservation Corps, a group of high school students who work on trails and carriage roads
- Award $250,000 in grants to the park and surrounding communities for conservation and preservation projects
Annual memberships begin at $35. If you choose to join at a higher level, you will receive additional membership benefits.
Friends of Acadia is a nonprofit organization recognized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your membership contribution is tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
