Memberships and Donations

As a 100% volunteer nonprofit organization focused on serving all the north Georgia counties where the woolly adelgid is a serious threat, Save Georgia's Hemlocks needs and deeply appreciates the participation and financial support of individuals and groups who embrace our vision.

We don't engage in any extraordinary fundraising activities but strive to operate in the most efficient, cost-effective manner and manage our resources very carefully in line with our stated mission.  Your membership not only provides a vital revenue source for SGH, but also keeps us close to the community we serve, supplies information about its needs, guides us on how best to meet those needs, enables us to carry out the work, and helps us continually fine-tune our Hemlock Help Program.

In return, we pledge to value your input, respect your time, offer you opportunities to use your talents in meaningful ways, and be an organization you can be proud of as we work together to serve others and save our hemlocks.
