Categories for membership include:

  • Corporate foundations / company giving programs
  • Community foundations
  • Donor-advised funds and holders of funds
  • Grantmaking public charities and public foundations
  • Grantmaking intermediaries
  • Giving circles and funder collaboratives
  • Private independent and family foundations

  • Professional service providers that expressly support philanthropy (e.g. investment/wealth managers and advisors, family offices, legal and financial advisors serving as trustees and advisors to trusts and foundations, consultants to foundations)
