Optimist Club meetings are more fun with friends! That's only one of the reasons that Optimist International invites you to add more Friends to your Optimist Club with the Friend of Optimist Community Impact Bundle.
For only $300, you or your Optimist Club may add six new Friends of Optimists to your Optimist Club. It's a great bargain and a way for your club to honor a community member, outstanding teacher or coach, business or other deserving individual and give them the opportunity to experience optimism. The cost per Friend of Optimist membership purchased with the Bundle is $50. There are no District dues.
There are a few rules:
- For bundles purchased during the 2014-15 Optimist year, each Friend must be activated by December 31, 2015. Clubs will not be refunded or credited for any Friends that are not activated by 12/31/15.
- For bundles purchased during the 2015-16 Optimist year, each Friend must be activated by September 30, 2016. Clubs will not be refunded or credited for any Friends that are not activated by 9/30/16.
- Friends count toward membership in the Optimist year in which they are activated.
- Clubs will not receive any reimbursement for Friends in the Community Impact Bundle.
- Once activated, the Friend Membership is valid for one calendar year from the date it was activated.
- If a Friend decides to renew after one year, it will cost the regular $100, and the Club will receive $40.
