So, how much does membership cost?

Greater Public members are organizations, and when you join as an organization, every single person on your staff has access to these membership resources. Dues are scaled to your organization’s annual revenue from non-federal sources, and they change slightly each year, with a floor and ceiling rate. We’re reforming our dues structure for 2022. Read about it here.

Your dues increase when your fundraising does too, so we’re incentivized to make you as successful as possible. Current minimum annual fees are $2,200 and maximum $9,150. Contact us to find out what your organization’s dues would be for the coming year.

We know that no organization has emerged unscathed from the events of the last year. For members renewing between April 2021 and March 2022, Greater Public will freeze membership dues at the 2020 amount. Unless we had a pre-existing rate schedule, whatever you paid in membership for your last renewal cycle will be the same as the next one. Our mission is the success of public media and we know that now is the time to boost your fundraising efforts; we also know you’ll be more successful with Greater Public by your side.
