Friends of Acadia invites businesses who value Acadia National Park for its essential role in the local and statewide economy to support the park by becoming business members of FOA. Designed to be affordable for small businesses, this new program offers membership at $100 and $200 levels. Business memberships help fund FOA’s work to conserve Acadia’s natural resources, engage young people in the park, improve visitor experience, and maintain Acadia’s historic carriage roads and trails. Participating businesses are recognized in a number of ways, year-round, for their commitment to the protection of Acadia.
Business Friends receive:
- Listing on the FOA website with a link to the business member’s website
- Listing in the Friends of Acadia Journal, the FOA E-News, and the Annual Report
- Listing in our year-end newspaper ad thanking all businesses for their support during the year
