Sponsor Membership

Major support is provided by RGS' various sustaining and Centurion memberships, Life and banquet sponsors.

Additional support is provided by its other member levels, corporate sponsors, and other donors.



Why not become a sustaining member by joining or upgrading your membership today!


RGS' strongest financial support from its members is given by its various sustaining member levels, Centurion (Life) members, banquet sponsors and Life Sponsors, with the greatest support provided by our Gullion Circle members. Our programs depend on this consistent and outstanding support by so many. Thank you to all of them!

From 1985 through 2007, RGS published Sponsor Prints provided to its banquet sponsors as an incentive. Starting in 2008, the sponsor print was replaced with a Print of The Year (PTY). The current year PTY appears below and all PTY and Sponsor prints are pictured here.

Starting in 2005, the paper version was replaced with an online PDF version that is available not only to its sponsors but all members and site visitors.

2014 -- RGS 2014 Annual Report **

RGS 2013 Annual Report

As RGS moves into its second 50 years, RGS' campaign to improve young forest wildlife habitat was supported by generous financial contributions from its members, sponsors and donors. RGS continues to depend on our members' commitment to pursue our long range goals and this dedicated assistance continues as one of the Society’s major strengths. RGS' gratitude to its many generous members and volunteers who continue to provide, their time, effort and money to move the organization forward is overflowing. We are especially thankful for all the Society Sponsor members listed in this report, who contribute over and above the basic membership level to allow RGS' pursuit of its mission. We continue to be grateful to all who have made the Society’s cause their own for the past 53 years and to all who will be a part of the Society’s forest wildlife habitat improvement campaign in the future. RGS again acknowledges, with this 2014 Annual Report, the continuing role of a special group, our Sponsors, that is such a major source of precious resources.
