Only 1,000 numbered lifetime memberships for the 1 in 1,000 Club will be available for a one-time buy-in of $1,000 each. All funds raised will be used for the good of the Order. Individuals may make a pledge to hold a space (provided the maximum of 1,000 memberships has not already been attained), but will not be provided a member number until their final payment is received. Membership is for individuals and groups. Couple and family memberships are not available. Established, autonomous Groups (such as State Grange Foundations or non-Grange organizations) or local or State Granges are eligible for membership with special requirements.
When the member passes away, the membership may be first made available to an individual designated by the late Club member but will require a “renewal” payment of $1,000 in order to keep the membership number. Should the designated individual wish not to renew the membership, it will be offered to the person at the top of the waiting list (or general membership if 1,000 are not already assigned). Autonomous Groups, or local and State Granges who wish to hold membership in the Club will require a renewal payment of $1,000 every 10 years in order to keep their membership.
Members will receive a special pin and certificate and be entitled to invitation-only events throughout the year and during National Convention.
NOTE: INDIVIDUALS MUST APPLY SEPARATELY AND HOLD SEPARATE NUMBERS, REGARDLESS OF MARRIAGE STATUS.
