If you have not already done so, please consider joining Friends of Live Oaks by making a payment for 2021 dues for individuals of $25.00, for a business, community organization, or other nonprofit organization of $100.00, and/or a gift to help support our efforts.

You may mail a check made payable to Friends of Live Oaks, c/o Clay Bernick, 214 A 84th Street, Virginia Beach, VA 23451 or bring a check to one of our Meetings. We will send you a receipt for your tax records. We are now officially a 501(c)3 organization and donations are tax deductible!

Over the next year we hope to be able to build a fund balance that can help us support the following initiatives at a minimum:

1 – Lease of fencing to help offset costs for protecting live oaks on development sites


2- Supplies to support our fledgling live oaks seedling nursery for propagating native live oaks


3- Purchase of live oak saplings that can be donated to interested persons or businesses who will adopt a live oak and sustain it on their property


4- Help to build a fund for transplanting eligible live oaks threatened with impacts from development activity to new protected locations


5- Pay our annual costs for website registration, State Corporation Commission registration, and other support costs

We will be adding an option to join and/or donate at our website soon.
In the meantime, we hope you choose to join us and/or donate by mail today!
