Find Your Regional Association

You can enhance your giving by joining a regional association of grantmakers and connecting with other grantmaking organizations and donors in your community. To learn more about membership opportunities, contact your local regional association.

Specific membership criteria and dues structures vary from region to region; however, the following types of organizations are always eligible for membership in the regional association of grantmakers that covers the region in which that organization is either based or does significant grantmaking:
 
  • Private foundations
  • Family foundations
  • Community foundations
  • Businesses with foundations or corporate giving programs
 
In addition, many regional associations also welcome one or more of the following:
 
  • Public foundations
  • Operating foundations
  • Donor advised funds
  • Funds addressing particular populations, e.g., women’s or Native American funds
  • Individual donors
  • Financial or legal advisors to donors
  • Charitable nonprofit, grantseeking organizations (usually as associate members)
 
For resources on philanthropy specific to your community, please consult your local regional association.
