You will be transferred to our secure payment processor, which is PayPal, where you may chose your method of payment. You do not need to be a member of PayPal to do this, nor will PayPal retain any of your information. When you have made payment you will be returned to The Friends web site. Note: This process sometimes refers to your support payment as an "order".
FIRST: There are premiums for new Friends at $100 and above. Check here.
Second - 1) Select the support level from the drop-down box; 2) select an electronic (email) newsletter or paper newsletter; 3) select a renewal option and 4) select if you wish to receive email updates from us (no ads and we do not share email addresses).
THEN click on the "Join us" button to become a Friend. (you may change your support level any year upon renewal). You will be given the option to pay via credit card, debit card, or PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to do this. It may take several seconds for the PayPal site to load. PayPal requires that you have an email address to use their process as that is how they issue receipts. The address you give them for payment is the address they send us and we will use that as your Friends address. E-mail us if you want a different address.
Once you have chosen your support level and are on the PayPal site, click the "CONTINUE SHOPPING" link and you will return to this page where you can select a special additional donation and then click the "Add to Cart" button.
You can cancel the entire process at the bottom of the Checkout Page.
