Membership

When you join the Elmwood Village Association as a member, you provide necessary financial support for our ongoing mission to improve the quality of life for everyone in our community!   The EVA has recorded over (24) twenty four years of service to Buffalo and the Elmwood Village community, and our “team” is still made up of our Board of Directors, EVA Staff, Resident & Merchant Members, and invaluable community volunteers dedicated to building a better neighborhood.

We build a better neighborhood by engaging neighbors, merchants, and visitors around shared goals.  We inform the community about public meetings, and we encourage civic participation through our member committees.  We invest in beautification projects and public amenities that contribute to a distinct sense of place.  We take pride in the Elmwood Village’s unique urban character, and we support the many small businesses that together make this Buffalo’s best shopping district.  Lastly, we bring the community together through events like the Summer Concert Series and Farmer’s Market.

Two Membership Categories:

Residential Memberships are now organized into both Individual ($50) and Household ($150) packages.  In addition to supporting our advocacy efforts, each single membership includes invitations to (2) member only events, plus merchant appreciation specials (2x) a year.  Once a member, you are invited to serve within one of the (4) committees to support our mission.  Strong committee members are the perfect people to join the Board of Directors.

Business Memberships are primarily organized into the three Basic ($150), Partner ($275/365), and Anchor ($500) packages that also outline the co-marketing opportunities within our website and social media reach.  We use our email blasts to drive exposure for the commercial strip, and we provide merchants opportunities to be vendors at EVA events.  Click on the Business Membership page to see a full breakdown of benefits.

Note: Non-Profit Organizations should pick the Business Member package that best matches their goals for marketing and exposure alongside the EVA.
