Friends of the FUNd

Become a Friend of the FUNd member to help tell stories, spread gratitude, and pass along fundraising information.

From yoga, axe throwing, to an online kombucha brewing class, the Friends of the FUNd (FOTF) held so many great events this past year! We are so grateful to all who hosted and sponsored events, became FOTF Members, and purchased a ticket to attend one of our events in support of the School. The first year of our Friends of the FUNd membership program was a success and we are planning for the next round of events in 2020-2021. Our summer socials will be back before you know it, and yoga is confirmed. And during the year, we'll be at Chaparral Ice in November and the nail salon in February, to name a few. 
Our goal is to host a wide variety of exciting, small-group events fostering relationships and keeping the FUN in fundraising. We would love to have your ideas about what would entice you and your family to join the Friends of the FUNd this year.
Friends of the FUNd memberships can be purchased or renewed at this year's rate ONLY until June 30. When you become a Friend of the FUNd member, you receive a complimentary and transferable ticket to every FOTF event for a calendar year. Plus, members sometimes receive coupon codes and discounts to use to purchase a ticket for a family member or to pass along to friendsSupport Headwaters by becoming a member today at this link.
