The Illinois Native Plant Society recognizes that not everyone has the same ability to pay for membership to our organization. To reduce the cost barrier of INPS membership for those with limited income, as of 2021, we now offer a no-cost membership option based on the honor system. After submission of the form below, an INPS board member will reach out to confirm your membership or answer any questions you may have.
Individuals may apply for the sponsored membership program for two consecutive years with reevaluation based on circumstances in subsequent years. The total number of sponsored memberships we are able to offer is dependent on our available budget and assessed on an annual basis.
Donations to the INPS General Fund facilitate the continuation of this program.
