How much does it cost to join SCG?

Philanthropic Grantmakers and Government Grantmakers support SCG through annual contributions based upon their total prior year’s grants, as shown in the table below. For Philanthropic and Government Members headquartered in a county of SCG’s region other than Los Angeles County, membership dues are reduced by 33%. Philanthropic and Government Grantmakers headquartered outside SCG’s region may calculate dues based on total funding awarded within SCG’s region during the prior year (i.e., excluding funds given in other areas). SCG’s region consists of Los Angeles, Kern, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.

For Philanthropic Consultants, dues are $1,000 per year. Full members of the National Network of Consultants to Grantmakers (NNCG) are eligible for a $200 annual discount.

Please note that SCG will be increasing our dues rates by 10% next year (2019) after keeping dues unchanged since 2008. Over the past several years, we’ve dramatically expanded our programming, policy advocacy, peer network and collaborative initiatives. Now, with this increase, your support will sustain and strengthen SCG to keep you on the forefront of impact and innovation. Please refer to the current (2018) and future (2019) rates shown below.
