10th Anniversary


Membership Drive

10 years. This relationship is getting serious! 

2018 will mark 10 YEARS that MOASH has been working to promote adolescent sexual and reproductive health in Michigan!  We know that you have stood by us over the past few years as we’ve grown, and we couldn’t be more grateful for your support.  Now we’re asking you to define the relationship…by becoming a MOASH member!

Are you our bestie?  A flirt?  Our main squeeze?  By signing up as a MOASH member at one of 8 different levels of student membership or monthly giving (pictured below!), you’ll receive some awesome swag, receive our new members-only advocacy newsletter, be featured on our communications, and of course, help fund our amazing programming across the state of Michigan.

Learn more about the membership benefits at different levels on the matrix below, then donate here and select the “relationship status” that’s right for you!
