Ruthmere Rising!

On January 1, 2023, Ruthmere launched Ruthmere Rising, a new simplified structure to membership and support.  The goals of Ruthmere Rising are to make membership accessible to more people, disconnect philanthropic giving from membership, and offer a broad array of sponsorship opportunities for supporters to target their dollars to the programs that they like the most.  Learn more below and via the links to the left.

KEY POINTS:
  • Become a member, as either an individual or a business.  Join as a member for one modest price and enjoy the many benefits that only membership can offer.
  • Become a Program Sponsor for your favorite Ruthmere series and take ownership of the Ruthmere elements that you like best. We offer many options and special perks for sponsors.
