Join or renew your membership anytime.

Membership now runs from year-to-date of when you signed up!

The details of membership and pricing structure have changed. Find out the updates here:

Memberships will now be active for a full year from any date that you sign up. Now every member can enjoy a full year without concern for when you have joined or moved to the neighborhood. When it comes time for renewal, you will receive an email about your expiration date to take appropriate action. You asked for it – we did it!

Since 95% of our membership had selected the option of adding the $2 donation to Friends of Westgate Park (FOWP) to their account, we have included that donation in ALL levels of membership. WNA will still provide a matching $2 donation to FOWP for every membership added throughout the year.

During the new purchase process, you will be signing up as a registered member to the site. You will have a username and password assigned to your account. We will be developing website content viewable only to WNA members, for which you will have automatic access. We look forward to offering a more robust website experience to our members, so please stay tuned for updates as they are announced!

Westgate Neighborhood Scholarship

FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2023-2024

Applications accepted in March

The Westgate Neighbors Association Scholarship was established in 2015 as an extension of our mission to “help our community thrive”. The $1000 postsecondary education scholarship is funded by a portion of the proceeds from the Westgate Home & Garden Tour. It is awarded annually to a qualified resident of Westgate who contributes to the betterment of their community through their demonstrated service and leadership. While GPA and course selection are considered, the committee is focused more on the candidates’ involvement with their communities.
