Friends of Alternate ROOTS

Friends of Alternate ROOTS Campaign

 Calling all friends! Our Friends of Alternate ROOTS program is for everyone who believes in the power of artists working for social change and social justice to help create a better world – right here in the South! It's for folks just like you – a ROOTS member artist or cultural organizer, or a current or past donor, or perhaps an admirer of ROOTS vision and mission. You're probably looking for a way to show your support because you know how important this effort is, especially in the ROOTS region and especially in this political climate.

If that's the case, we need friends like you! There are five levels of friendship. Just choose the one that tickles your fancy and feels comfortable for you.

Pen Pals ($10 Per Year)

Like a care package in the nick of time, a pen pal's message of support is just what an artist needs.

Buddies ($30 Per Year)

Everyone has them, everyone needs them. Buddies are precious. You may not have a lot of buddies, and those you do, you hold them close.

Friends or Lovers - You Decide! ($75 Per Year)

Whether you are a ROOTS Lover, or Friend, or both on alternating days, we know you're in the struggle with us for the long haul. And we so appreciate you. We are building a movement for change, and it's time for all hands on deck. So we thank you in advance for all you do.

Best Friends ($150 Per Year)

You know how special it is to be someone's best friend. At ROOTS we take this seriously. Best friends are with you through thick and thin. They will tell you the truth and help you pack. They know that being best friends is about action, showing your support.

Best Friends for Life ($500 Per Year)

Best Friends for Life are the people we can count on.  We know that this work, the vision and mission of ROOTS and its artists, is something you hold near and dear. We cannot thank you enough.
