Mount Washington Improvement Association (MWIA) is an all-volunteer organization that has been working to benefit our neighborhood since 1885. In addition to sponsoring and funding community events and opportunities, MWIA works with officials at the city, state, and federal levels on issues ranging from development, transportation, public safety, parks, schools, and zoning.

Either way, your support is important and appreciated.
Please note: MWIA is not a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We maintain a 501(c)(4) status that allows us to lobby on behalf of the neighborhood. Consequently, MWIA dues are not tax deductible.
For the price of an annual MWIA membership – $19 for new members, $40 for renewals, or an optional $100 contribution for recognition as a “supporting member” – residents will receive a value card that entitles them to both single- and repeated-use offers. In all, these offers, available only to 2017 MWIA members, are worth more than $2,000. The program is intended to encourage residents to shop locally, support locally owned businesses, and join the MWIA.
See the Directory of Value Card Offers for all the details.
NOTE: This card is only available to MWIA members.
When you join or renew your MWIA membership, you will receive:

Offers that may be used one time only are indicated in the directory with an asterisk.
You must present your value card and the merchant's coupon from the coupon sheet you will receive to redeem the offer.
Along with the value card, your membership will bring you all of the benefits that come from supporting a strong and effective neighborhood association. In recent years MWIA has:

Please join MWIA to keep our neighborhood great and to make it even better.
NOTE: The Member Value Card is valid for the current calendar year. Join early in the year to enjoy the benefits all year long.
