Education, Social Impact

A Great Year for BFI Membership

Our Membership program was relaunched in 2015 with more giveaways than ever! In an effort to give back for the growing support, BFI has developed benefit opportunities with kind help from our growing network of partners and friends.

All Members were given discounts to our online store and entry to our Challenge program on top of receiving a specially designed 2015 Membership card in the mail. Read more about what you receive at different levels of Membership here.
