2015 Membership Dues Schedule

2015 Membership Dues Schedule

The Council uses a three-year rolling average of assets and grants to calculate membership dues. For new members, the Council uses data for the three most recent years. If your organization is a potential Council member and you'd like to request a dues schedule, please call (703) 879-0645 or send your request to membership@cof.org.

Member Dues Policy

Membership in the Council on Foundations is on a calendar year basis. Membership dues may be rounded to the nearest $10. For purposes of completing Forms 990 or 990-PF, all dues paid in excess of $500 may reasonably be reported as a grant to the Council rather than an administrative cost. The Council will provide an annual statement substantiation to corporations for dues paid on behalf of corporate giving program members or combined corporate foundation and giving programs members indicating the amount of the dues contribution that qualifies as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
