Welcome to the Rushmore Society.

The Rushmore Society is a real life social network of very busy people in search of Adventure, Connection and Play to Do More and Live More.

What does that mean? Let’s break it down.

Real Life: off our mobile devices, on the regular.

Social Network: Rushmore is a “Third Place” to expand and diversify your experiences and connections beyond co-workers, old friends, and the dreaded “bar and dating scene.”

Very Busy People: Oh gezz, tell us about it. Thus, Rushmore is a service. Cool opportunities, interesting people, organized and at your finger tips, every single month.

Just Click, Go, Explore, Be Happy.

Adventure, Connection and Play: Life is about variety of experience. When you get involved, you’ll do things you’d never otherwise get to do.

Do More, Live More: Don’t get overloaded, our motto is about being ready and excited to suck the marrow outta life when you can, not stressing out.

Plus, it rhymed with Rushmore.

And this just scratches the surface!

Three years in the making, our membership benefits includes stuff you and the world need:

Good looking people to take selfies by waterfalls with. Ahh, no.

Try better people and new experiences, saving money while supporting local businesses, and having to organized all for you!

Events

First, what Rushmore is best known for—incredibly unique events emphasizing Adventure, Connection or Play.

Twelve times a month, Rushmore creates, organizes and promotes events in one of these three categories.

Our events are the lynch pin of the Society and continue to be a huge success—bringing people together to have a blast, doing things they’d never get to do and meeting people they might never have met.

Check out our Fall highlights:

All of our 2017 events are posted and ready for your RSVP!

The first step is showing up. All our members were once new. Now, most like each other. At least that’s what they say. So, get started today!

Erndo Partnership

Rushmore is incredibly excited to announce our partnership with local start-up company, Erndo. The partnership adds tremendous value to the Rushmore membership.

Now, when you become a member of Rushmore you download the Erndo-Rushmore application and instantly gain benefits whenever you support and shop at locally-owned businesses.

Why is this such a HUGE addition to our membership?

Well, we know that sometimes, no matter how much fun and adventure the Society offers every month, people get busy and are sometimes unable to attend events regularly.

Why become a member if you think you won’t attend often, right? We get it.

Well, now you get all the unique events organized and made available right at your fingertips every single month, plus big Erndo benefits that can virtually pay for your membership, while simultaneously supporting your local business community.

Literally everyone wins.

UPDATE: The current list of Erndo businesses is exploding. If you are shopping, eating or drinking in Ashland or Medford, and you aren’t using Erdno, holy cow, you are throwing dough away. Erndo can literally pay for your Rushmore membership!

Three Ways to Get Free Membership

Interested in getting FREE months of Rushmore?

We’ve got three simple and easy ways: Refer a friend, share a passion, or generate an Erndo lead.

Whether you take advantage of one or all of these paths to free months is totally up to you.

If you do, you can easily pay for an entire year of Rushmore!

Through your membership you can diversify your experiences and connections, explore, have a blast, connect with new people, do things cheaper than anyone else while supporting local businesses, earn sweet Erndo benefits, and get to try things you’d never get to do, all for FREE.

Refer a Friend

Got friends looking to expand their experiences and connections? Refer them to become a member. When they join, you get a month free.

Share a Passion

Have a passion or talent that you would like to share with the Society? Perfect. With our guidance, you organize and run an event for the Society, then you get that month free.

An Erndo Lead

If you know of, work for, or own a local business that might benefit from Erndo, talk to them and help us set up a meeting. If the business becomes part of the Erndo-Rushmore network, you get a month free, the business gains customers, and all our members get benefits when they shop. Everyone wins!

Frequently Asked Questions

If these commonly asked question don’t answer a question you have, never ever hesitate to message the Society. We respond quick!

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE PURPOSE OF THE RUSHMORE SOCIETY?

To provide an opportunity to expand and diversify our experiences and connections beyond co-workers, old high school friends, and the dreaded “bar and dating” scene. We are none of those things.

We are a “Third Place.”

A place to find positive, active people, and connect with them through unique experiences, fun and events to build a powerful network.

WHY WAS THE RUSHMORE SOCIETY CREATED?

A rich life includes diverse experiences and connections. But, finding the time, let alone high quality people, is tough! We make it easy.

IS RUSHMORE A DATING “THING”?

Absolutely not.

It’s actually uncommon, but sometimes guys and gals come to the Society looking to date. We are chalk full of interesting, active people after all.

Unfortunately, they are usually disappointed because our vibe is explicitly platonic.

If dating important to you, your participation in Rushmore usually helps make you more attractive to people outside of the Society by virtue of interesting experience and expanded connections!

AM I TOO OLD OR TOO YOUNG TO BECOME A MEMBER? WILL I FIT IN?

The Society is an eclectic mix of people. Our youngest member is 21. Our oldest is 50. All members have one thing in common—they are young at heart and generally desire to try new things and meet some new people.

WHO ARE RUSHMORE MEMBERS?

Our members come from all walks of life—teachers, physical therapists, nurses, bakers, bartenders, local business owners, actors, lawyers, BLM employees, auto mechanics, artists, hard-working parents and up-and-coming students, wilderness guides, web designers, entrepreneurs, and on and on.

And, they are all right here in the Rogue Valley!

WHAT’S IT LIKE COMING TO AN EVENT FOR THE FIRST TIME?

It’s about as low key and fun as you can imagine. Kick back and have some fun. Explore a little adventure. Play a little. Introduce yourself to one person. No biggie. We were ALL once new.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE REASONS PEOPLE JOIN THE RUSHMORE SOCIETY?

How long do you have, lol?

Many join just because of all the fun, unique things the Society organizes and offers every single month. It’s pretty convenient to have a wide variety of options you never have to think about created for you every month.

Others are looking to meet new pals. So many positive connections have been made between our members. While you won’t connect with everyone you meet, it’s nearly impossible to not make great new friends in the Society.

Still others like all the discounts we get. The power of the group is incredible. As Rushmore has grown, businesses have started to recognize that being promoted by the Society can drive business to them, and thus they very often give Rushmore hefty discounts and a huge variety of fun opportunities. We pass those saving on to you.

And, moving forward, more and more will join simply because of the incredible benefits of Erndo. You see, anyone can, and we strongly encourage everyone to, download Erndo even if you don’t become a member of the Society. However, if you do become a Rushmore member, you earn HUGE benefits over Joe-Smo General Public through our partnership with Erndo.

And more and more are joining to do a little professional and business networking. We use these terms loosely. However, you’d be surprised at how often little interactions lead to big opportunities.

I’M DEFINITELY INTERESTED. WHERE DO I START?

Come to an event! Your first four Rushmore events are on us! Come and explore. Get a feel for what Rushmore is all about. Then, decide if membership is for you. Easy-peasy.

WHY IS IT CALLED THE RUSHMORE SOCIETY?

The inspiration behind the Society is based on three films. First, Dead Poet’s Society, where the crew seeks to suck the marrow out of life. Second, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, where Ferris says, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you just might miss it.” And third, Wes Anderson’s Rushmore, where the protagonist Max Fischer spends all his high school days creating eclectic clubs instead of attending to his studies.

The combination of sentiments of these three films drive us to Do More and Live More.

IF I DECIDE NOT TO BECOME A MEMBER AT THIS TIME, HOW CAN I FOLLOW ALONG?

A tremendous amount of work goes into running the Society, and we truly believe we are providing an immensely valuable service, one that pays our members back ten-fold in fun, benefits and connections.

And if, after four events, you decide not to become a member, you can still support the Society by following us on Social Media, sharing Rushmore with friends you think might benefit, send us a message about a local business that would benefit from a Rushmore event, etc.

Every ounce helps us strengthen our local community!
