Dedicated to Community Service

The Amherst Club, founded in 1983, includes men and women living or working in the greater Amherst area who are linked by a common interest in enhancing the quality of life for themselves and their neighbors. Their efforts, aimed at community betterment, include supporting social service, cultural, and educational activities in the area.

The Club meets weekly for luncheon, conversation, and a program, usually a guest speaker. It has other occasional social gatherings. These social events serve to bring together community leaders who might not otherwise come to know one another.

The Club performs fundraising for local service organizations, in particular via our annual Love Notes fundraiser. We also maintain an endowment fund.


• The Amherst Club welcomes diversity among its members, and encourages civic-minded men and women living or working in the greater Amherst area to join. Members attend weekly luncheon meetings and demonstrate their concern for the community by devoting time and effort to the Club’s endeavors.  Especially important is working on Love Notes, the Club’s annual fundraiser.

 • Membership inquiries are welcome. Applications for membership, available from the Club President, are reviewed for approval by the Membership Committee and the Board of Directors. 

 • Membership dues cover the costs of operating the Club, primarily the Tuesday lunches enjoyed by members.  Dues are billed quarterly as follows:

        Full Membership:             $100 per quarter
        Associate Membership:     $30 per quarter
        Partnership Membership: $115 per quarter
        Guest Luncheon Fee:         $13 per luncheon

Full membership includes all luncheons.

Associate status is an option for members who know that they will be unable to attend Tuesday meetings regularly.  Dues for Associate Members include one lunch per quarter. These members attend additional luncheons by paying the guest fee.

Partnership membership is shared by two people.  Either may attend any luncheon but, if both attend the same meeting, one guest fee is paid.
