Giving Institute Membership Procedure:

Membership in the Giving Institute is for fundraising consulting and nonprofit services firms. A Member is defined as a for profit entity or the affiliate(s) of such organization, whose services conform to the Institute’s Standards of Membership and Professional Conduct and primarily provide services to advance the mission of nonprofit organizations.

All membership applications will be reviewed and approved by The Giving Institute’s Membership Committee and Board of Directors.

The Giving Institute will select and interview three clients from this list. After reviewing the comments received from clients, the membership application will be submitted to The Giving Institute board for vote.
