Become a Sustainer – Support ECO with regular ongoing gifts

Won’t you become an ECO Sustainer?

In order to grow as a regional environmental leader, ECO needs a consistent cashflow – one that comes from greater guaranteed support. Our Environmental Sustainer program helps meet this need by encouraging supporters to donate regularly throughout the year (monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annually) at whatever rate they choose.

Thanks to our partnership with Moneris Funds, you can opt to have your gifts to ECO come directly out of your credit or debit card account. You’ll get a monthly statement from your card provider and we’ll send you an annual statement to account for your tax-deductible donations. No need to write checks, send mail or remember due dates.

Annual membership is included as part of your donation and comes with such great incentives as discounts at Mast General Store and Wild Birds Unlimited in Hendersonville. .

We value your commitment to our environmental values and hope you’ll continue to support us by becoming an Environmental Sustainer.

To authorize ECO to set up your recurring gift, please print out this form. Fill it out, sign it and bring by our office or mail to ECO, 611 N. Church Street, Hendersonville, NC 28792.
