How to Support the Friends of Joshua Tree: FOJT is 100% supported by donations from climbers and event proceeds. Keep the voice of climbing strong and effective by sending us a tax-deductible donation. All donations will get a receipt in return mail, and sign up for our occasional e-newsletters. Help us now with donation to our Spring Fund Drive.
Become a “friend” to the Friends of Josh
If you’ve ever hiked an approach, placed a cam, set up a toprope, or clipped a bolt in Joshua Tree National Park, you know what a magical place it is. Help preserve that magic for others to experience. Become a “friend” to the Friends of Joshua Tree and support the only group that advocates climbing in the park. By becoming a friend—with your $25 annual support (or whatever you can afford) you’ll receive:
- “Wonderland”, the Friends of Joshua Tree e-newsletter, produced four times a year
- Heads-up notice on all Friends of Joshua Tree events and activities
- Priority sign-up for Friends of Josh events (like campsites, reserved seating at slideshows and movie nights, and feature athlete clinics)
- Connectivity to the Access Fund, American Alpine Club and other Local Climbing Organizations who keep access for climbers a priority in the SoCal area
- Satisfaction of putting your money toward a good climber’s cause
- 501 c 3 tax-deductible donation

Climbers Alert Monitoring System
OK. You’re not ready to put out cash just quite yet. We understand. Care to take us for a test drive? If you aren’t ready to be a friend quite yet, then sign up for our newsletter and climb aboard the CAMS list. It’s free!
When you join the CAMS list, you’ll get periodic emails from the Friends of Joshua Tree. Think of the CAMS list as the voice of Josh climbers—if we alert you to an access issue in the park, for example, you can tell us your opinion. With the CAMS list you can also find out when the next Friends of Josh event will be. And you’ll be in touch with others who care about the future of climbing in the park. Joining the CAMS list will keep you informed.
For those special few who already support Friends of Josh but want to step it up, please consider donating additional sums of money to support our cause. Even a few extra dollars can make a difference. Currently we are trying to help JOSAR kit out the JOSAR Garage, one of the latest projects FOJT has enabled for Search & Rescue in the Park. Sign up for our newsletter and keep up to date on the progress!
If you work for or own a company that would like to support Friends of Joshua Tree, please contact us. We are always in need of gear donations (stuff we can turn into cash support at our events, raffles and auctions), food (stuff we can feed people at our events), or just about anything else. Be creative and be helpful. The JOSAR garage project is high priority so your support is especially needed now. Get in before the end of 2012 to maximize your tax-deductible contribution in this calendar year.
Volunteers: Schedule yourself at our next event, through the park system or offer a slideshow at your local gym and donate the proceeds to FOJT. You’ll be glad you did. If you are interested in helping out FOJT at our events or in any way, just email us at email@example.com . Thanks!
Non-profit organizations live and die by the quality of their volunteer staff. Are you very good-looking and able to climb 5.14? If so, then go be on the cover of Deadpoint. But if you’re dependable and willing to help, we’re always looking for volunteers for events as well as FOJT Organizational Projects and the Board Of Directors. FYI Climb Smart 2013 is October 19-21 and we need particularly strong ‘boots on the ground’ at that event. Please contact us for more information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
