Beginning in the Spring of 2014, PWA offers the Loon Lovers membership option of recurring monthly donations via credit card. For as little as $5.00/month (or as much as you want to donate monthly), you can support our work with a steady, reliable stream of income. You are spared from submitting renewal forms and postage and writing checks. As a gift for enrolling in the Loon Lovers Membership Program, you will receive a benefit book with over $200 in coupons for area merchants and a unique 3"x6" PWA Loon Lover bumper sticker. It's a win-win proposition!
While it is easy to enroll in the Loon Lovers program, please note the following guidelines:
- Your address should match the billing address for your credit card.
- You can punctuate your phone numbers with . or - if you desire.
- Do not include spaces or dashes in your credit card number.
- If you get an error message, do not click on "Please try again". Return to this Membership page and start anew.
- If unable to submit your donation online, please contact the office (207-563-2196 or firstname.lastname@example.org)

Benefit PWA through your online shopping, selling on eBay, searching, and direct donations!
You can donate online directly to PWA through Network for Good, or you can benefit PWA as you shop online through either iGive.com (click here or see below) or GoodShop.com (similar idea to iGive.com but some different stores). The internet search tool GoodSearch.com is Yahoo-based and allows you to specify that PWA should receive income (from advertisers on Yahoo) for searches that you conduct through GoodSearch. GoodSearch and GoodShop are related. Our latest opportunity for your online activities to support PWA is through MissionFish, a service provided through eBay that lets you designate a percentage of proceeds from your sales on eBay as a donation to PWA.
What if up to 26% of each purchase you made went to Pemaquid Watershed Association? Your shopping through iGive.com at hundreds of online stores helps a cause close to your heart with each purchase! It´s all free & private. Join today and change online shopping for good. Follow the icon link below.
PWA greatly appreciates the support of businesses in our community. Please reward them for their support with your patronage – and thank them for helping PWA!
