Mesa Verde Foundation’s work is made possible by the generous members who pledge their continued support to help preserve and protect Mesa Verde National Park for generations to come. 
 
Whether you want to join at the supporter level or become a full Mesa Verde Foundation Fellow member, there’s a membership level to fit any budget.
 
Join Mesa Verde Association today (a unique collaboration between Mesa Verde Foundation and the Mesa Verde Museum Association) and your support will help preserve our unique national treasure for generations to come! And now, your gift will support both Mesa Verde Foundation and the Mesa Verde Museum Association.
 
Mesa Verde Museum Association (MVMA) is the park’s innovative educational partner that inspires life-long stewardship of the Mesa Verde region’s cultural and natural heritage. Its goal is to enhance public understanding of Mesa Verde through membership, field seminars, volunteer and publishing programs and the operation of educational bookstores throughout the park, in the nearby community of Cortez, and online at www.mesaverde.orgfull-joint-logo.jpg
 
By becoming a member of Mesa Verde Association, you can join a team of people who value and want to advance the goals of the Mesa Verde Museum Association, Mesa Verde Foundation, and the National Park Service. Your annual membership dues are used to supplement the Foundation’s and Association’s contributions to the park's interpretive and educational programs, and to the park's capital improvement projects. 
 
By working together, we develop products and sponsor events and projects that enhance the visitor experience as well as preserve Mesa Verde for future generations.
