MEMBERSHIP

IT'S YOUR YARD! BECOME A MEMBER NOW!

Remember that individual memberships and contributions together make up roughly 70% of The Yard's annual budget. That's 70% of each exciting summer season, 70% of our work in the island schools, 70% of ensuring that Martha's Vineyard is very much a prime destination on the nation's cultural interstate. That's why, quite simply, we ask you to step up and join.

The Yard has created the Membership Family to enable you to actively join in the ideas, artists and activities island-wide that make The Yard an indispensable part of the Vineyard cultural experience for all ages. When you become a Yard Member, your contribution directly fuels the Yard's year-round mission of making artists a constant presence in the life and education of the community.

Just as important, your annual membership in The Yard counts toward the "BACK (THE) YARD!" Challenge Match, launched by the generous gift of an Anonymous donor. Your membership is essentially matched on at least a 1:1 basis.

At each level of membership (annual from the date you buy in), The Yard provides special benefits, ranging from listings in all programs, guest passes, discounts on merchandise (when available), discounted community movement/dance classes, reduced or free tickets (depending on level), reserved parking spaces and priority seating, and even some up-island restaurant dinners with artists and Yard directors!

Benefits of purchasing a membership are good for 1 YEAR from your purchase date.
