Membership Levels

The majority of our supporters provide an annual institutional contribution that they classify as “annual dues.” For other funders who cannot provide membership support/dues, we engage in a grant strategy for either general operating or project-specific support, depending on the interests and guidelines of each specific funder. FCAA welcomes individual support at any level and is approved to receive matching gifts from employers.

  • Institutional Membership – Enables all grant making staff and trustees to participate in FCAA activities as members.
  • Individual Membership – Enables individuals who serve (or have served) as staff or board members of qualifying grant-making institutions to participate in FCAA activities as members.
