Member Dues

Member dues are based upon “Total Expenses” from page 1 of your IRS Form 990 or 990-EZ, or use total expenses for the prior fiscal year. Private foundations, use “Total Operating & Admin Expenses” from your 990-PF. (see chart below)

If your organization is brand new or falls below the $25K threshold, your dues will be Free since you will not yet have prior year expenses. Your membership begins the day you pay dues and lasts for a full year.  (These fees support our ability to provide you with services and support, products and training.)
