Did you know that the Altapass Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) that depends on the generosity of donors to fund the programs that support our mission of preserving the land, history, and culture of the Altapass region? There are many ways you can help. One of the easiest is to become a annual member at whatever level fits your budget. Or you may consider contributing to our endowment fund, which help assure we will be around for another 25 years and beyond. Or you may even consider becoming a legacy member. Are you a business? Why not sponsor an event, a performance or program?
It's so simple to say how much you appreciate what the Orchard does in our community, for people of all ages, and the land on which they call home. Take a moment to think about it, then follow the links below to sign up or give us a call, 828-765-9531. We're happy to tell you all about the Orchard and how you can make a difference.

Annual Memberships

Memberships are the core of our giving program. Your annual gift helps us to offer free and low-cost programs every day of our six-month season.
To make it easier to support the Orchard, we offer several membership options and methods of payment. Memberships start at $30. No matter how you choose to support, your contribution, in any amount, is greatly appreciated.

To join, please download either membership document. Categories and amounts are all explained—then print out or fill, in and mail* back the form or use the fill-in form and email back. 


The Orchard at Altapass has been here since 1994. We plan to be here for another 25, offering entertainment and education programs that reflect a simpler time, while preserving the land and propagating the apples. You can help us ensure our legacy by contributing to the Orchard Endowment Fund at several recognition levels. Make a donation online on this site, or mail a check or money order. Details are on the Donation Page. If you prefer, please give us a call or email for an appointment. We'll sit down and speak with you about endowment giving.

Legacy Giving

Become a member of the Orchard Legacy Society through a charitable bequest or estate plan. Legacy funding ensures your continuing support for a cause and place you care about and gives you the opportunity to carry on your family-giving philanthrophy. 
To learn all the details about joining the Legacy Society at a level in keeping with your wishes, please give us a call, or email for an appointment. We'll sit down with you and explain all the options available, which will ensure that your wishes are clearly understood and carefully carried out in the future.
