To All Members:

 

The Mended Hearts, Inc. is excited to introduce a new concept of membership designed to engage more heart patients, caregivers and families so we can expand the hope and support we provide so well.

 

Mended Hearts, Inc. provides many services for its chapters and members. We rely on donations from individuals and companies to help us with operational costs and other costs than cannot be covered through sponsorships. We have also relied on membership dues to help defray these costs. Therefore, if you have been paying membership dues, we hope you will consider choosing a membership level that includes a donation to help our organization stay strong.  

 

People wishing to join Mended Hearts and Mended Little Hearts and current members are now able to choose a membership level that is right for them. Each membership level involves different benefits and ways to engage with and participate in the hope, help, and healing the organization provides to those of all ages impacted by heart disease and congenital heart defects/disease.

 

What do you need to know?

Current members who pay annual dues at the rate of $20.00 may, when their annual dues expire, renew at the Full Membership level and donate the same $20 they have been donating through annual dues. Again, this is much needed support for our organization. They might also choose to further support Mended Hearts and Mended Little Hearts at a higher level of membership and enjoy even more benefits. Finally, they may choose to move down to the Associate Membership level. See below for the new levels and benefits.

 

Current Lifetime Members will remain at that status.
