Apply for membership

As a fraternal organization, our process for membership of those age 14 and older includes an application step. The application, along with the application fee, may be submitted online, in person or by mail. Once your application has been approved, you will be invited to officially join Jefferson Grange, pay dues and have access to all benefits of membership.

Once approved, individuals/businesses can pay the membership fee and be welcomed as new members.

Fraternal members

The backbone of the Grange in each of its chapters, fraternal members meet, vote on projects and programs, and work to meet the needs of their neighbors and communities. In return for their efforts, these members are offered a variety of benefits, access to various programs, contests and events. Members also enjoy fellowship, gain invaluable skills and much more.  Members 14* and older local Grangers, while children 5 to 14 are Junior Grange members with their own meetings, service projects, age-specific programs and more.

Their support is a key resource that allows fraternal members to continue our good work and shows the community how invested they are in local philanthropic efforts.
